Resurgent Antisemitism

Global Perspectives

Dating back millennia, antisemitism has been called "the longest hatred." Thought to be vanquished after the horrors of the Holocaust, in recent decades it has once again become a disturbing presence in many parts of the world. Resurgent Antisemitism presents original research that elucidates the social, intellectual, and ideological roots of the "new" antisemitism and the place it has come to occupy in the public sphere. By exploring the sources, goals, and consequences of today's antisemitism and its relationship to the past, the book contributes to an understanding of this phenomenon that may help diminish its appeal and mitigate its more harmful effects.

Glazer Chair in Jewish Studies and is Professor of English and Founding Director of the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism at Indiana University Bloomington.

Reviews

"The editor has culled articles from outstanding, thorough and sophisticated scholars representing diverse disciplines. The result is a brilliantly nuanced geographical and ideological atlas which analyzes the coordinates of antisemitism in its malevolent tentacles all over the world. The breadth of the inquiry is astonishing . . ."—Jewish Post & Opinion

"The present collection lays bare the double-think, identifies modern libels, and counters them with historical knowledge; it maps paths for further retrieval of such knowledge. It grants its audience a fuller understanding of the resurgent antisemitism not only as a social but also as an intellectual phenomenon, a nexus of different strands of cultural history."—Modern Judaism

"The authors make their case for paying closer attention to contemporary expressions of antisemitism. Interested academic and general readers will want to do so through this book."—Library Journal

"This new book . . . comes as a bright flare of warning about the renewal of the ancient hatred of Jews . . . Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in wiping out European Jewry. Today his goal has gone global."—National Catholic Reporter

"Despite its more than 500 pages, the book's many subjects and perspectives ensure it never ceases to be interesting, and it does an outstanding job of describing the chilling diversity of anti-Semitism today."—ForeWord Reviews

"Extremely interesting, timely, well researched, and well argued . . . the book makes a major contribution to our understanding of a very important and deeply troubling issue."—Maurice Samuels, Yale University

"Indispensable to our understanding of contemporary antisemitism and how these new variations are informed and empowered by classical themes . . . a key text that helps to frame the intellectual debates now developing in the new field of Antisemitism Studies."—Catherine D.
