Yivo Annual of Jewish Social Science
The activities of the Yiddish Scientific Institute have long been of interest to students of the social sciences concerned with problems that touch upon the Jews, the more so since its headquarters moved to New York in 1939. Yet the barriers of language have kept its publications from receiving either the full measure of appreciation due them, or the mature and comprehensive criticism essential to the maintenance of contacts with other lines of scholarly development. The projected series of annual volumes in which representative selections of the work of the organization will appear in English translation will certainly be gratifying to those hitherto deprived of access by ignorance of Yiddish and, no doubt, profitable to the members of Yivo themselves.
