Summary note:
  • "Although early Zionist thinkers, perhaps naively, believed that with sovereignty, anti-Jewish persecution would end, anti-Zionism has become one form of the "new" antisemitism following World War II. Because antisemitism has not been effectively addressed, anti-Jewish rhetoric, activism, and deadly violence have flourished around the world. In Anti-Judaism, Antisemitism, and Delegitimizing Israel, editor Robert S. Wistrich and an array of notable academics, journalists, and political scientists analyze multiple aspects of the current surge in anti-Jewish and anti-Israel rhetoric and violence. Contributors including Ben Cohen, R. Amy Elman, Lesley Klaff, Matthias Kuntzel, Nelly Las, Alvin H. Rosenfeld, and Efraim Sicher, among others, examine antisemitism from the perspectives of history, academia, gender, identity, and religion. Offering a variety of viewpoints and insights into disturbing trends worldwide, the contributors provide a basis for further discussion and increased efforts to counter the increasingly vocal and violent hatred of Jews and Israel"-- Provided by publisher.
  • "An exploration of the many aspects of the current surge in anti-Jewish and anti-Israel rhetoric and violence around the world"-- Provided by publisher.
