Jonathan Fox and Lev Topor
Reviews and Awards
"Ultimately, so long as the reader is vigilant and takes care not to blur together the background theoretical accounts with the actual empirical measurements conducted by the authors, the data provided in this book can usefully bolster our knowledge." -- David Schraub, Lewis & Clark Law School, Portland, Oregon, USA, Journal of Church and State
"The sheer volume of statistical data and the multivariate analyses the authors have assembled are impressive, as is the range of relevant historical and political material on dozens of states." -- Barry A. Kosmin, Sociology of Religion
"The data provided in this book can usefully bolster our knowledge of what is, and is not, connected to anti-Jewish discrimination." -- David Schraub, Journal of Church and State
"Jonathan Fox and Lev Topor's Why Do people Discriminate against Jews? is not another book on antisemitism. It is a pioneer survey that provides unique data on the nature and causes of discrimination against Jews across a wide range of countries. The results are impressive and unexpected and will change the debate on antisemitism by obliging scholars to revisit and nuance the expected causes of discrimination: religious beliefs, Zionism, and conspiracy theory." -- Jocelyne Cesari, University of Birmingham and Georgetown University
