Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of essays on Anglo-Jewish personalities in the nineteenth century, this book is about changing times and people's differing responses. Between the presentation of the first bill in 1830 for the civil emancipation of the Jews, and the death of Hermann Adler in 1911, the Jews in Britain increased tenfold. The increasingly open western society thrust forward challenges to those who remembered or who chose to cultivate outlooks of an earlier age. The rapidity of change sharpened the edge of every challenge. Meanwhile each successive generation, seeking to determine its own preferences, became itself subject to fresh nuances of thought. The ceaseless flow of change provides all these chapters with their connecting link, their historical interest and their human element.

Book News Annotation:

The author of Jewish Society in Victorian England (1993), who has headed various British Jewish institutions, profiles English Jews in the period between their civil emancipation and the death of Chief Rabbi Hermann Adler. He studies the "religious disabilities" and aspirations of English Jews and the careers of anglicized Jewish leaders and their relationship with gentiles such as Matthew Arnold, in this era of changing attitudes within and outside of the Jewish community regarding identity and a Jewish homeland. Includes b&w photos of prominent Jews, and a glossary of ethnic terms.
