Book was published a part of a 300 year celebration of the Jews return to England (after their expulsion in the early part of the 13th century). The changing position of Jews, their eventual admittance into mainstream British society (legally at least), and the influence of the German and Portuguese movements (via the synagogues) in Jewish lives. Written from an Orthodox viewpoint, it is still a comprehension survey of Anglo-Jewish history I the past 300 years. Newer movements (reform, liberal) are not given much shrift.
