Description

“The Children of the Ghetto” is a 1892 novel by British author Israel Zangwill (1864–1926). The first book in Zangwill’s “of the Ghetto” books, which offers an insight into the generation of Jewish immigrants caught between the ghetto and modern British life in the late nineteenth century. When first published this book brought him instant international fame. A fascinating and thought-provoking novel not to be missed by those who have read and enjoyed other works in Zangwill’s “of the Ghetto” series. Zangwill was a leading figure in cultural Zionism during the 19th century, as well as close friend of father of modern political Zionism, Theodor Herzl. In later life, he renounced the seeking of a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Other notable works by this author include: “Dreamers of the Ghetto” (1898) and “Ghetto Tragedies” (1899). Highly recommended for fans and collectors of Zangwill’s seminal literature.
