Description : The book focuses on Britain during the First World War and the immediate post-war period, and examines the use of biblical imagery with regard to representations of the nation and its perceived enemies. The study is constructed around four rhetorical themes: 'crusade', 'conversion', 'crucifixion' and 'apocalypse', and traces these through a wide variety of texts, including public lectures, sermons, press articles, political speeches and memoirs, pre-millennialist writings, cartoons, plays, poetry and popular fiction. The central argument is that in the context of rhetorically constructed 'Christian warfare', religious language took on political significance, and old allegations against Jews began to recirculate. The study examines the religious, political and sexual fears associated by Christians with Jews during and after the war, and discusses the ways in which Anglo-Jewish writers, including G. B. Stern, Gilbert Frankau and Isaac Rosenberg, responded to these developments.

Description : This is an authoritative and comprehensive history of the Jews of Britain over the last century and a half. Geoffrey Alderman examines the social structure and economic base of Jewish communities in Victorian England and traces the struggle for emancipation. He analyses the effects of the large-scale immigration of the early twentieth century and charts the development of the Zionist movement in Britain. Professor Alderman takes his account up to the present day, exploring the concernsand self-image of contemporary Jewish communities in Britain and their place in an increasingly pluralist society. Based on a wealth of primary and secondary sources, Modern British Jewry is a political, social, and intellectual history of British Jews which is critical, scholarly, and immensely readable. For this paperback edition Professor Alderman has added a new chapter examining contemporary themes and issues. REVIEWS `This is the definitive history of modern British Jewry.As such it deserves a wide reading', Choice `Written in a lively, engaging manner . . . it includes the first substantial treatment of events and trends in the interwar period and the half-century since World War II', American Historical Review `should appeal to a wide audience at different levels . . . it deserves the attention of most scholars and a space on most college library shelves', History `an important synthetic history of British Jewry . . .

Filled equally with drama and information, it puts the Jews firmly into the mainstreamof British history', Times Higher Education Supplement `Professor Geoffrey Alderman writes with authority, his industry is impressive, his research is wide-ranging and thorough. He makes some startling revelations . . . Serious students of Jewish history will have serious arguments with it; but they will treasure it for its wealth of detail, its candour, and the light it throws on obscure corners of Jewish life' Jewish Chronicle `the first honest, scholarly study of modern Anglo-Jewry.' Simon Denison, Sunday Telegraph `highly readable ... His analysis of the 19th-century Jewish party affiliations is fascinating.' The Times `a detailed account of Jewish communal activities and quarrels.' Martin Gilbert, The Guardian 'Professor Alderman has resolved to 'expose the new reality' of Jewish history 'warts and all'' The Spectator 'This is by far the best book on its subject - immensely informed, thoroughly researched, supremely accurate, intelligently organized, and, in its discussion of communal rifts, admirably free of partisan bias. Alderman's book is refreshingly iconoclastic in its rejection of an old style of communal history ... briskly unapologetic work.' Times Literary Supplement

Description : Previously published as a special issue of The Journal of Israeli History, this book presents the reflections of historians from Israel, Europe, Canada and the United States concerning the similarities and differences between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism primarily in Europe and the Middle East. Spanning the past century, the essays explore the continuum of critique from early challenges to Zionism and they offer criteria to ascertain when criticism with particular policies has and has not coalesced into an "ism" of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. Including studies of England, France, Germany, Poland, the United States, Iran and Israel, the volume also examines the elements of continuity and break in European traditions of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism when they diffused to the Arab and Islamic. Essential course reading for students of religious history.

Description : The connections between religion and violence are complex and multifaceted. From the conflicts in Middle East and the Balkans to those in Southeast Asia and beyond, religion frames and legitimates political violence. Moreover, in international relations since 9/11, religious language and metaphors have acquired a new significance. In this context the emerging consensus appears to be not only that violence is intrinsic to religion, but also that religions incite, legitimate, and intensify political violence. However, such an unambiguous indictment of religions is incomplete in that it fails both to appreciate significant counter examples and to recognize the diversity that exists within religions on the issue of violence, particularly the religious roots of pacifism and the ethics of non-violence. This collection explores aspects of this ambivalence between religion and violence. It focuses on traditions of legitimation and pacifism within the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and concludes with an examination of this ambivalence as it unfolds in each tradition's engagement with the politics of gender.
