A ground-breaking book that offers the first ever comprehensive history of anti-Semitism in England. Julius identifies four distinct versions of English anti-semitism. Firstly, the medieval prejudice of characterized by defamation, expropriation, murder and ultimately expulsion in 1290. Secondly, the literary account of Jews continuously present in the discourse of English literature from medieval times to the present. Thirdly, modern anti-Semitism, a quotidiananti-Semitism of insult and partial exclusion, experienced by Jews from their “readmission” to England in the mid-17th century through to the late 20th century. And finally, contemporary anti-Semitism, a new configuration of anti-Zionisms, emerging in the late 1960s and the 1970s, which treatsZionism and the State of Israel as illegitimate Jewish enterprises.
