The new book A History of the Jews of the British Empire is a useful work of scholarship, presenting evidence from a variety of sources, in a manner that allows for a thorough understanding of the history of the Jews of the British Empire. The volume should be a welcome addition to those already reading the subject from different angles. It draws on a range of sources and uses them well, as I suspect it will be useful on the course of future studies of Jewish history.
One thing that sets the work apart, however, is the fact that it does not simply rely upon a collection of early sources. Rather it is set in a fictional setting and, as such, draws much of its information from such literature as The History of the Jews from Antiquity to the Present by Robert Graves. For a book that deals with Jews in modern Britain, this is a useful addition to the literature.
However it also highlights certain problems with using such literature on the Jews. Graves’s work is more concerned with the political implications of modern Judaism than the religious ones. It can be used as an introduction to the topic and indeed is useful in this sense. However in the book it leaves a lot of open space for scholarship and speculation. There are suggestions that the Jews of Egypt are the more important groups because of their history to the Ottoman empire and subsequent subjugation. It is also suggested that the Jews of India have a more difficult historical position than the Jews of Egypt and are more subject to the ravages of time. Finally, it is made clear in the end that the British took care of the Jews to such a degree during the 19th century that it would have been impossible for them to be able to tolerate their existence.
This is a book that should be read by anyone who is interested in the subject. The book is well written and there is no sense of being dragged across the floor with its author as you read it. While it may well be seen as being somewhat of a polemic, at its heart it is a well researched and well reasoned work.
