Summary:
This book addresses the development of "civil" antisemitism in twentieth-century Britain, a crucial and often critically neglected strand of anti-Jewish rhetoric that, prior to 1934, was essential to the legitimization not only of proto-fascist political and literary discourses, but also of certain structural and stylistic practices within literary modernism itself.

Abstract:

This book addresses the development of "civil" antisemitism in twentieth-century Britain, a crucial and often critically neglected strand of anti-Jewish rhetoric that, prior to 1934, was essential to the legitimization not only of proto-fascist political and literary discourses, but also of certain structural and stylistic practices within literary modernism itself.

"This book focuses on "civil" antisemitism in twentieth-century Britain, a crucial and often critically neglected form of anti-Jewish rhetoric. Civil antisemitism is shaped by a tradition of British civility and etiquette, one that disdains blatant or "vulgar" expressions of bigotry. This preoccupation with courtesy and manners gives rise to techniques for cloaking the virulence of anti-Jewish hostilities--in short, hate rhetoric functioning as "civil" discourse. The book addresses a variety of manifestations of civil antisemitism, including parliamentary debates, ethnographic reportage, fascist fiction and propaganda, and ultimately modernist literature, particularly the work of Djuna Barnes, Virginia Woolf, and Wyndham Lewis"--
