Mendoza the Jew

Written by Ronald Schechter and published by Oxford University Press, Mendoza the Jew tells the story of Daniel Mendoza, a poor Sephardic Jew from East London who became the boxing champion of Britain in 1789. Through the struggles and successes of his life, the book explores issues of nationalism, identity, culture, and historical methodology. It takes the same form as Abina and the Important Men, containing a graphic history, primary source documents and historical context.

"When 16-year-old Raeesha ran away from Jasmine House to avoid a forced marriage to the cruel Amir Qilij, she didn't know she was running into the arms of foreign invaders. Nor did she expect that her simple disguise, as a boy, would become her permanent identity. Now, she finds herself enlisted in a cause not her own, drawn ever closer to the charismatic Gen. Singer, and into a world of battles, intrigues, desperate ventures, and wonders. See the book trailer:"
