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.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 253-255) and index.
