By Robin Shepherd. Landmark new book examines the history of English anti-Semitism. The book “Trials of the Diaspora, A History of Anti-Semitism in England” is the first comprehensive study of English anti-Semitism ever to have been published.
At more than 800 pages it is a tome to be reckoned with. But do not allow its length to put you off. It is magnificently written and can be read either from cover to cover or as a reference book to be dipped into whenever the need arises.
The bulk of the book looks at anti-Semitism in England from medieval times to the present day with the last two chapters specifically devoted to anti-Zionism. An invaluable piece of scholarship and a must read for anyone professing interest in the subject.
