Fresh Light on Beilis Ritual Murder Trial

An important volume on the famous Beilis ritual murder trial of 1913 has just been finished here by Advocate Tager, who has been at work on the book for about ten years. It makes a thorough examination of the historic trial, based on important documents in the Government archives which have become available only since the Revolution.

Several Soviet statesmen, including the Minister of Foreign Affairs, M. Litvinoff, M. Lunarcharsky, and M. Radek, and also many famous writers who have read the book in manuscript claim that it is one of the most important works written in recent years. The Russian edition of the book will shortly be followed by translations into several foreign languages.
