The extraordinary lives of the Laras of London during the Georgian period. Abraham collaborated with Pitt the Younger's Government to reduce the National Debt. Esther's husband was a good friend and benefactor of Horatio Nelson. Benjamin was the perpetrator of a huge lottery swindle and his brother, Moses, accumulated a huge fortune. Charlotte Dacre and her father the Jew King were personalities of the day. Their life stories are absorbing and entertaining: drawn from letters, court proceedings and other contemporary sources. 'Jews in Georgian Society' is rich in detail and full of remarkable insights into the commonplace and exceptional circumstances of this extended family.
