Victims or Villains: Jewish Images in Classic English Detective Fiction

By Malcolm J. Turnbull | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

In the course of researching and writing Victims or Villains (the former over several years), I have had input and assistance from a number of people, who either provided copies of relevant articles and other material, responded to queries, tendered advice, or alerted me to specific sources. I am grateful to individual staff members at the University of Cambridge and British Libraries,who cheerfully eased access through red tape when time was especially limited, as well as to Christopher Dean and Susan O'Brien of the Dorothy L. Sayers Society, Beverley Davis OAM of the Australian Jewish Historical Society (Vic), Professor Jon L. Breen, Dilys Wynn, Jacquie Binns and Colin Thornton-Smith. John Willis tirelessly (as always) located material, organised photocopying and helped make the rounds of bookstores in Australia and overseas. Professor W.D. (Bill) Rubinstein of the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, a fellow Golden Age enthusiast, provided several sources and very kindly read and commented on an early draft. (His recent and controversial history of Anglo-Jewry was, of course, a key reference and point-of-departure when I looked at the position of the Jew in Britain). Finally, I owe a particular debt of gratitude to Marcia Harriman who acted as a virtual (and voluntary) research assistant by providing numerous references to Jews culled from her own extensive reading within the genre.
