History and Hate: The Dimensions of Anti-Semitism

By David Berger | Go to book overview

Preface

Anti-Semitism has been the subject of many fine works, ranging from multi-volume surveys, like Leon Poliakov History of Anti- Semitism, through book-length studies of entire periods, like Jacob Katz's From Prejudice to Destruction: Anti-Semitism 1700-1933 , to a host of scholarly books and articles examining points of detail. Nevertheless, this volume presents the issues in a manner that should provide both fresh insights and useful synthesis for student, scholar, and general reader; unlike its recent predecessors, it covers the entire sweep of the history of anti-Semitism through sharply focused analyses of each major era by first-rate scholars expert in the specific period they discuss.

This book emerged from a conference sponsored by The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and by The Joseph and Ceil Mazer Institute for Research and Advanced Studies in Judaica of the Center for Jewish Studies, City University of New York. It is a special pleasure to thank Theodore Freedman of ADL for his central role in coordinating the conference and Yael Zerubavel of the Center for Jewish Studies for her assistance in ensuring its success.
