Antisemitism: A Very Short Introduction

Second Edition

Steven Beller

Very Short Introductions

  • 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 consequences
  • 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

New to this Edition:

  • Incorporates new research on the motivation and responsibility for the Holocaust
  • Addresses 'Muslim antisemitism' and the hostility to Israel and Israeli policy in light of recent political developments
  • Re-evaluates traditional political antisemitism after the financial crash of 2008 and the ensuing wave of xenophobia and nationalism in Europe
