Christian and Jewish Women in Britain, 1880-1940: Living with Difference
This book offers an entirely new contribution to the history of multiculturalism in Britain, 1880-1940. It shows how friendship and co-operation between Christian and Jewish women changed lives and, as the Second World War approached, actually saved them. A great variety of sources are thoughtfully interrogated, and concluding remarks address some of the social concerns of the present century.
