Antisemitism and the left

On the return of the Jewish question

First Edition

Robert Fine and Philip Spencer

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Makes a genuine contribution to our understanding of antisemitism and of what has made it such an enduring feature of the modern age
  • Provides a concise overview of struggles waged in the Enlightenment, in Marxism, in Jewish communities and in the contemporary left to rescue universalism from its repressive and antisemitic associations
  • Allows us to see why antisemitism can have an appeal to those who sees themselves as liberals, socialists, universalists or cosmopolitans
  • Explores the relationship between Jewish emancipation and the Jewish question as expressions of universal principles applied to concrete issues of inclusion and exclusion
