Though largely forgotten now, Israel Zangwill was a giant figure in English literary life from the early 1890s until his death in 1926. He made his name with Children of the Ghetto in 1892 - a panoramic novel of life in the poverty-stricken Jewish East End of London. For the last 30 years of his life Zangwill was also deeply and controversially involved in Zionism - in which he argued that a Jewish homeland should not be in Palestine.
Mark Whitaker assesses the literary and political career of the father of the English immigrant novel.
