The Persistence Of Prejudice: Antisemitism In British Society During The Second World War

£89.99

Product description

The Persistence Of Prejudice examines attitudes to Jews at all levels of society during a war that many saw as a fight against fascism. As a contribution to the social history of wartime Britain, it also reveals the strengths and weaknesses of a liberal democracy. Tony Kushner examines the impact of evacuation, the Blitz, the black market and other aspects of the war on relations between gentile and Jew. He probes attitudes to Anglo-Jewry, from left to right of the political spectrum. The Jewish image in society, the response of the State to Jews at home and abroad, and the effect of antisemitism on the Jewish community itself receive particular attention.

This book suggests that, rather than being confined to extremists, antisemitism was part of the mainstream culture. This book is likely to interest those studying or teaching social history, Jewish history or race relations in sociology, politics and cultural studies.

This hardback 1989 first edition is in a good, used condition overall. It is complete with its dustjacket which has a small sticker mark on the inside front flap. There are a few minor marks here and there on the dustjacket but otherwise it is free from chips or tears. The blue cloth boards are gilt stamped on the spine and are a little spotted and stained. The binding is sound. The text block is yellowing slightly but appears to be free from inscriptions or annotations.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
