Disguising his authorship to avoid bringing scandal and shame to his family name, Neville spent a great deal of time abroad in Europe, entering a realm of aristocratic intrigue and mystery that provided the foundation for some of his greatest plays

Philosemitism : admiration and support in the English-speaking world for Jews, 1840-1939 by W. D Rubinstein( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'In their previous general histories of the Jewish communities of Great Britain and Australia, Bill and Hilary Rubinstein have challenged 'neo-orthadox' perceptions that antisemitism has been a key player in the progress of Jews in the English-speaking world. This new study goes a step further, the authors identifying and tracing a sturdy, far-reaching and highly visible tradition of non-Jewish support for Jews and Jewish causes, beginning with public meetings over the Damascus Affair in 1840. Meticulously researched and persuasively analysed, Philosemitism is a major and groundbreaking contribution to both the literature on post-Enlightenment antisemitsm and our knowledge of Jewish-gentile relations in the modern era.' - Malcolm J. Turnbull Australian Jewish Historical Society 'In their previous general histories of the Jewish communities of Great Britain and Australia, Bill and Hilary Rubinstein have challenged 'neo-orthodox' perceptions that antisemitism has been a key player in the progress of Jews in the English-speaking world. This new study goes a step further, the authors identifying and tracing a sturdy, far-reaching and highly visible tradition of non-Jewish support for Jews and Jewish causes, beginning with public meetings over the Damascus Affair in 1840.

Turnbull, Australian Jewish Historical Society 'William and Hillary Rubinstein provide refreshing antidotes to many widespread beliefs about antisemitism. Anyone who believes that Jews in modern times faced universal hatred, or that protests against antisemitism by non-Jews were generally insignificant and ineffective, should read these pages. The book is filled with fascinating details - readable and thought provoking.' - Albert S. Lindemann, Professor of History, University of California 'The new book by the Rubinsteins is to be warmly welcomed by students of Jewish history and Christian-Jewish relations. Its scope is broad, the English-speaking world since the 1840's. While the emphasis here is naturally on Britain, proportionate coverage is given to the USA, and such countries as Australia are included and with the same masterly command of the sources. The Rubinsteins conclude that with the end of Jewish powerlessness and Israel reborn in 1948, antisemitism is declining so fast that the new century will not be far gone before its disappearance will be effected. That seems to good to be true, but the authors make a compelling case in a marvellously suggestive book.' - Frederick M. Schweitzer, Professor of History and Director of the Holocaust Resource Center, Manhattan College, New York, and author of Myths and Hate 'This pioneering study provides an important new perspective on the treatment of Jews in the modern world.' - Rabbi Professor Dan Cohn-Sherbok, University of Wales, Lampeter

Who wrote Shakespeare's plays? by W. D Rubinstein( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over 150 years many intelligent, highly educated men and women have questioned whether William Shakespeare wrote the works attributed to him. From an obscure family in a small provincial town, Shakespeare had no formal education after the age of thirteen. His surviving handwriting consists of six signatures on legal documents. His will makes no mention of his books or manuscripts. His two daughters were illiterate. There is, in other words, a seemingly enormous gap between the meagreness of Shakespeare's background and his achievements as the greatest and most famous writer in the English language. Over the years, numerous 'candidates' have been proposed as the true author. Often dismissed by the orthodox Shakespeare establishment in Britain and America as crackpots, the Anti-Stratfordians, as they are known, have become increasingly visible and numerous during the past thirty years. Who Wrote Shakespeare's Plays? provides a clear, objective guide to the Shakespeare authorship question by examining all of the candidates, including William Shakespeare himself. It is the first book to examine in an objective way the strengths and deficiencies of the arguments for each potential Shakespeare: Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford; Sir Francis Bacon; Christopher Marlowe; William Stanley, 6th Earl of Derby; Roger Manners, 5th Earl of Rutland; Mary Sidney; Sir Henry Neville. William Rubinstein goes on to consider William Shakespeare himself in the same objective fashion. This book is a fascinating, comprehensive, and up-to-date look at one of history's greatest mysteries
