This book provides an excellent account of the struggle between fascists and the Jewish community in the East End of London during the 1930's - a struggle that culminated in the infamous Battle of Cable Street - the confrontation in 1936 between the police, fascists and anti-fascists in the heart of the East End

From the rear side cover: During the 1930s, Oswald Mosley's Blackshirts intensified their campaign against  the Jewish community, particularly in London's East End. As that campaign became  more overtly antisemitic, and more physically intimidating, Jewish groups  debated how to deal with the fascist threat, ultimately building their own  defence organisations and forging alliances with others. The simmering tensions  in East London culminated in the Battle of Cable Street, when more than 100,000  people, mainly from the local Jewish and Irish communities, prevented Mosley's  troops marching through the East End.
