Reaktion Books' author Anthony Bale wins the Beatrice White Prize 2012

We are pleased to announce that The Editors and the English Association have awarded this year's Beatrice White Prize to Dr. Anthony Bale for Feeling Persecuted: Christians, Jews, and Images of Violence in the Middle Ages. In this book, Dr. Bale exposes the violence enacted by the Jews in the imagination of Christians and how the images of this Christian suffering and persecution were central to medieval ideas of love, community and home.

The Year's Work in English Studies is a narrative bibliography that records and evaluates scholarly writing on English language and on literatures written in English. It is published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the English Association.
