Antisemitism: A Very Short Introduction

Steven Beller

Very Short Introductions

  • Examines why "Jew-hatred" appears to be so persistent throughout history
  • Focuses on the growth of political antisemitism in the 19th century--and uses this as a frame to consider its historical roots, its social and cultural impact, and its chilling consequences
  • The author discusses the role and attitudes of key figures such as Wagner, Nietzsche, and Marx, as well as key texts such as the forged "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"
  • Looks at antisemitism beyond the Holocaust: from the establishment of Israel, to "Aryan" supremacism in the US, Holocaust denial, and Islamic anti-Zionism
  • Part of the bestselling Very Short Introductions series - millions of copies sold worldwide
