The decade of the 1960's directed the attention of many historians to the problems of the Black American; discrimination, political and social inequality, ghetto concentration, and so on, and so on. Their story is not unique, yet it must be told if justice is to be served. Perhaps this study of success of another minority group -- the American Jew -- will give additional purpose and hope to the cause of the Black. For it can be done! This study is limited to the activities of a minority group in international affairs, and how that group influences the relationship between the United States and Russia from June 2, 1832 to January 1, 1913. The objective of the study is to show how discrimination against American citizens of the Jewish faith, by Russia, led to the abrogation of the 1832 Treaty of Commerce and Navigation between the United States and Russia. The study ends on January 1, 1913, the day one purpose of the American Jewish Committee was realized, the day when the treaty between the two countries ceased to operate.
