Summary/Abstract: A book about the history of the Białystok pogrom in 1906, and simultaneously an important voice in the field of the theory and methodology of research on pogroms. The author critically evaluates previous research in terms of accepted research paradigms. He thoroughly analyzes sources concerning the Bialystok pogrom, and at the same time, using the example of Bialystok, he shows the general phenomena and vocabulary, including: the city as a pogrom space, pogrom as social interaction, pogrom as conspiracy and revenge, pogrom as a political conflict and finally the effects of pogrom – building a new order. He also presents a discussion about the definition of ‘pogrom’.
