He is the author of Jewish Rights, National Rites: Nationalism and Autonomy in Late Imperial and Revolutionary Russia and the editor of Jews and Diaspora Nationalism: Writings on Jewish Peoplehood in Europe and the United States. He is also an occasional contributor to Haaretz (English) and an editor at The Marginalia Review of Books. Rabinovitch is currently at work on a comparative study of Jewish collective rights in the twentieth century.
