Summary A study based on a survey of the Melbourne Jewish community conducted by Medding in 1961-62 in part fulfilment of the requirements for an M.A. degree at Melbourne University. Ch. 3 (pp. 55-75), "The Politics of Representation, " discuss the actions of the Victorian Jewish Board of Deputies to combat antisemitism which, however, was a minor phenomenon. It was confined mainly to manifestations of verbal prejudice, social exclusion, and the dissemination of antisemitic literature.
