Journalist and Pulitzer fellowship winner, Beckerman draws on newly released Soviet government documents as well as hundreds of oral interviews with refuseniks, activists, Zionist “hooligans,” and Congressional staffers in his new book, exploring the mass exodus in 1989 and how it shaped the American Jewish community and put human rights at the center of American foreign policy for the very first time, helping to end the Cold War.
