Summary and Info
The turbulent period from the Boer War to the introduction of the Aliens Act was marked by contradictory imaginings of ''the Jew''--pauper/capitalist, separatist/impostor, ideal colonizer/undesirable immigrant, familiar/alien. Going beyond the racial or cultural dimensions of fin de si?cle semitic discourse, this new collection considers the wider colonial context in which ambivalent attitudes to Jews were produced, in particular the nexus of Britain, East Africa and Palestine.
