Jacobs' Is Curly Jewish?' Due Soon
In October Atheneum will pub-
lish "Is Curly Jewish?", a ram-
bunctious memoir of American
society, written by Paul Jacobs.
The Atheneum book, due soon, is
a revealing account of how Jacobs
has sought to discover — in Ameri-
ca, behind the iron curtain and in
Israel — whether there is any con-
nection between his being a radical
and his identity as a Jew. His an-
swer to the question posed in the
title has significance for every
American, Jew or gentile alike.
The author's career is typical of
the American radical and mirrors
a vivid panorama of the American
scene from the 1930s to today.
Jacobs joined the Young Com-
munist League in the 1930s, was
expelled for Trotskyist leanings,
became a Trotskyite and then left
the movement to become a union
organizer. He served in the Army
from 1942 to 1945 and after his
discharge went to work for the
American Jewish Committee.
Three years later he returned to
the trade unions and finally, in
1955 began a new career as a

In November 1869, Russia re-
newed an obsolete 44-year-old
law prohibiting Jews from liv-

Kishinev—with a population of
20,000 Jewish families — had

1869, however, that newly ar-
