ALDERMAN, GEOFFREY (1944– ), British historian. An Oxford graduate, Geoffrey Alderman was professor of politics and contemporary history at Middlesex University in London and later vice president of American Intercontinental University in London. One of the best-known historians of the Jewish community in Britain, Alderman is the author of Modern British Jewry (1992), a sophisticated and deeply researched history of the Anglo-Jewish community since 1858; The Jewish Community in British Politics (1983); London Jewry and London Politics, 1889–1986 (1989); a history of the right-wing Orthodox, Federation of Synagogues, 1887–1987 (1987); and other works. In recent years he has written an often controversial weekly column in the Jewish Chronicle newspaper, which generally reflects his Orthodox Zionist viewpoint. (William D. Rubinstein (2nd ed.)
