Ranging across poetry, drama, visual culture, theology and philosophy, Feeling Persecuted shows that the violence perpetrated against Jews was a complex part of medieval life and culture, in which images of Christian suffering were central to ideas of love, community and home. ...more

Drawing on government documents and media sources, this groundbreaking reappraisal reveals the extent to which he succeeded in manipulating the news agenda to camouflage preparations for his attack on Egypt, exposes an unhealthy intimacy between press and government, and offers an interesting comparison with Margaret Thatcher's propaganda during the Falklands War. ...more
