about

This book traces the Jewish thread throughout English life between the Tudors and the beginnings of mass immigration in the mid-nineteenth century. The writing of English history has been very largely framed without taking note of the Jewish presence at all - here, for the first time, the Jewsare shown as an integral part of English religious and social history.David Katz explores completely new subjects in depth, such as the Jewish advocates of Henry VIII's divorce, and the Jewish conspirators of Elizabethan England, without neglecting themes such as the role of Jewish finance and the emergence of Anglo-Jewish institutions. This extensively researched andaccessible history of the Jews in England over almost four centuries will be essential reading for those interested in English and Jewish history.
David S. Katz is at Tel Aviv University.

Editorial Reviews

`This book will be of great interest not only to Jewish historians, but also to general historians who seek to incorporate the history of minorities such as the Jews into survey or upper-level courses. By striving to explain both the Jewish experience in England and English perceptions of theJews, Katz has greatly enriched our knowledge of both.'Stephen G. Burnett, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Sixteenth Century Journal XXVII/2 (1996)
