Antisemitism during the French Second Empire

Synopsis

Very little attention has been focused on French attitudes toward Jews between the French Revolution of 1789 and the Dreyfus Affair. This book fills that vacuum. Antisemitism During the French Second Empire analyzes the development of antisemitism in French life from 1850 to 1870. Based on archival material and contemporary press and journals the author traces through World War II to the present the antecedents of prejudice that poisoned French life during the Dreyfus Affair.
