About this Textbook

This volume is designed to assist university faculty and students studying and teaching about antisemitism, racism, and other forms of prejudice. In contrast with similar volumes, it is organized around specific concepts instead of chronology or geography. It promotes conversation about antisemitism across disciplinary, geographic, and thematic lines rather than privileging a single methodological paradigm, a specific academic field, or an overarching narrative.

Its twenty-one chapters by leading scholars in diverse fields address the relationship to antisemitism of concepts ranging from Anti-Judaism to Zionism. Each chapter not only traces the history and major scholarly debates around a key concept; it also presents an original argument, points to avenues for further research, and exemplifies a method of investigation.

Reviews

“This book is the rarest of things: a handy reference work that is also intellectually challenging and methodologically innovative. Amidst a spate of recent publications on antisemitism, it stands out as a novel tool that will enhance our understanding of a complex and seemingly intractable phenomenon.”

-          Jonathan Karp, Associate Professor in the Departments of History and Judaic Studies at Binghamton University, New York, USA

 

“Finally, a comprehensive and innovative approach to a contested historical and political phenomenon. The editors break up the topic up into well thought out key concepts, while the authors in turn provide fresh perspectives on a wide array of entangled topics that are essential for understanding antisemitism. Readable, insightful and provocative.”

-          Stefanie Schüler-Springorum, Director, Center for Research on Antisemitism, Technical University of Berlin, Germany
