Book Reviews the tone for a rather well developed presentation which, while I fundamentally agree with most of its conclusions, does not quite connect with what comes just before it. In summary, the strength of Williamson's volume is primarily his critique.

Hopefully he will turn his attention to this effort in the coming years since he definitely appears to be moving on the right track. John T. Pawlikowski, O.S.M, Ph.D. Catholic Theological Union Chicago Constructions of "the Jew" in English literature and Society: Racial Representations, 1875-1945, by Bryan Cheyette. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993. 301 pp. $54.95. The subject of the Jew in English literature often causes discomfort to readers and especially to teachers. How do we "explain away" problematic figures such as Shylock and Fagin-not to mention the nameless (but ethnically identified) merchants and moneylenders who dishearten us in works by authors we may otherwise admire? It is insufficient to answer that defamatory representations of Jews are simply "a product of the times," and over the years good scholarly work has been done
