Leo Pevsner Announces Release of 'The Long Lasting Journey: Notes of a Wondering Jew'
In "The Long Lasting Journey: Notes of a Wondering Jew" (published by AuthorHouse), author Leo Pevsner's new historical book, he presents readers with an outline on the cultural merits left behind in one world and found in another in regards to the Jewish faith.
"Over 3,000 years separate the exodus of biblical Jews from the land of Egypt and the last wave of Jewish migrants to exit Russia," says Pevsner. "Today, hundreds of thousands of Russian Jews find themselves in the United States, Israel and elsewhere. What made them depart this time around? What country are they loyal to? Who is a Russian Jew? My book is about a people in quest of a better destiny."
Written against the backdrop of dramatic political developments in two world superpowers in the second half of the 20th century, "The Long Lasting Journey" explores the historical and social context which helped form the distinct culture of Soviet Jews. Readers will find that this group represents an essentially distinct form of Jewish culture. Written with a mixture of personal divisive experiences, focused observations and subjective reflections, the book will help any reader understand one more unique culture within our multi-cultural society.

Leo Pevsner belongs to a generation of baby-boomers. His lifetime has been divided into two dissimilar parts: Russian and American. This divergence alleviated his understanding of moral basis, cultures and ethics of these two so distinctive societies.
