Abrams provides a preliminary survey of the representation of Jews in British cinema both in front of and behind the camera from the beginnings of the UK film industry to the present day. In doing so, he outlines the reason for the relative lack of films in Britain that can be considered Jewish. While there are a variety of factors for this, the main reason he argues is the type of identity that British Jews have developed as a response to their context. However, since 1990 there have been signs that this is beginning to change, and more films reflective of the British-Jewish experience are appearing.
