About Iakov Priluker

Jaakoff Prelooker (1860–1935), after an early career in Russia as a Jewish religious reformer, arrived in Britain in 1891 with the aim of spreading the ‘ideas of reconciliation… between man and man’ which he had unsuccessfully propagandized in Russia. As a lecturer, magazine editor (The Anglo‐Russian) and publicist, he participated in the swell of interest in Russia which swept Britain in the quarter‐century before the Great War. After 1908, when he was naturalized, Prelooker became more interested in the international implications of topics he had previously considered mainly from the Russian angle: peace, women's rights, religious tolerance. Well known in his lifetime, he is now unjustly neglected compared to his contemporaries Stepniak, Kropotkin and company. (Taylor & Francis Online)
