Yiddish Culture in Britain

A Guide

Leonard Prager

The Guide, a detailed one-volume reference work with alphabetically ordered entries, is a bio-bibliography of Yiddish culture in Britain, emphasising Jewish life lived-in-Yiddish and based largely on Yiddish sources. It views Yiddish culture in Britain as a small but vital segment of Ashkenazic life showing its lifelines from the Continent and to the New World. It documents the multiple relations which this culture has had with its surroundings, Jewish and non-Jewish. Wholly in English, it includes biographical, bibliographical, historical, linguistic, theatrical and other kinds of information, much of it unavailable elsewhere.
Contents: The Guide records a significant minority culture whose traces are becoming ever harder to find in today's Britain.
