DescriptionThis is a compelling discussion of transformations within British Jewry in the recent times. The first study of contemporary British Jewry since the 1970s, "Turbulent Times: The British Jewish Community Today" examines the changing nature of the British Jewish community and its leadership since 1990. Keith Kahn-Harris and Ben Gidley contend that there has been a shift within Jewish communal discourse from a strategy of security, which emphasized Anglo-Jewry's secure British belonging and citizenship, to a strategy of insecurity, which emphasizes the dangers and threats Jews face individually and communally. Addressing key questions on the transitions in the history of Anglo-Jewish community and leadership, and tackling the concept of the new anti-Semitism, this important and timely study addresses the question: how has UK Jewry adapted from a shift from monoculturalism to multiculturalism?
