The Jews in the History of England, 1485-1850
The writing of English history has mainly been framed without taking note of the Jewish presence at all; here, for the first time, Jews are shown as an integral part of English religious and social history. David S. Katz examines hitherto unexplored topics such as the Jewish advocates of Henry VIII's divorce and the Jewish conspirators of Elizabethan England, as well as contributing to continuing debate on subjects such as the role of Jewish finance and the emergence of Anglo-Jewish institutions. This extensively researched and readable history of the Jews in England over almost four centuries will be essential reading for those interested in English and Jewish history alike.
