this book I could be ranked among the cynics and sceptics" of the Board, but, after his research, now believes that "the Jews of Britain need a representative body and the Board has fulfilled that function, warts and all," a conclusion which seems quite justified. The Board and its associated bodies were chiefly responsible for bringing 75,000 German Jewish refuges to Britain from 1933 to 1939, and of mounting effective campaigns on behalf of post-war Soviet Jewry and in support of Israel. Compared with its equivalent bodies in other English-speaking countries, however, it often seems notably low-keyed and lacking in chutzpah, especially towards the anti-Israel bias of institutions like the BBC and left-wing sources like the Guardian newspaper. This may be the British Way, and it may be effective in the long run, but the Board also often does itself no favors in Anglo-Jewish eyes by its perceived weakness. Raphael Langham's excellent work is an important and very valuable addition to the many recent studies of Anglo-Jewish history. William D.
