Because of the Jews? Yuri Slezkine, professor of Russian history at UC Berkeley
The ‘Jews running the world’ may be one of the dirtiest conspiracies for some, but not for our guest today. A scholar of Jewish history, he maintains that Jews are indeed overrepresented in many key occupations and played a vital role in all major pursuits of the 20th century – from capitalism and liberalism to nationalism and socialism. And the future also belongs to the Jews. Is that too risky of an argument in this age of political correctness? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Yuri Slezkine, professor of History at the University of California, Berkeley.
