Essays on Antisemitism

Excerpt

The present volume of essays on antisemitism is an outgrowth of a symposium on antisemitism arranged by the Conference on Jewish Relations in 1935. The essays by Ralph Marcus, Solomon Grayzel, Joseph Reider, Guido Kisch, Samuel Rosenblatt, I. S. Wechsler, Jacob R. Marcus and Z. Diesendruck were prepared for publication from the papers presented at this symposium. They have, in the main, been allowed to stand in the more informal presentation in which they were originally prepared. The essays by Mark Vishniak, Raphael Mahler and B. Weinryb were written specially for this volume. Only the paper by the late Professor Diesendruck has been previously published (see Jewish Social Studies, vol. i, 1939, p. 399-408).

The first part of the volume deals with historical studies of antisemitism in particular epochs or geographical regions; the second part brings together several essays which aim at a more general and universal analysis of this momentous problem. It is important to point out to the reader, however, that this volume does not attempt to present a comprehensive treatment of the entire subject of antisemitism, either historically or analytically. Many important epochs or geographical areas in which antisemitism has prevailed are not touched upon here. The editors do feel, however, that the essays here collected represent a fresh approach to some of the older problems of antisemitism or, in other cases, new treatments of hitherto neglected aspects of the subject. In the same way no attempt has been made in this volume to treat of the subject . . .
