Reviews

"Despite its more than 500 pages, the book's many subjects and perspectives ensure it never ceases to be interesting, and it does an outstanding job of describing the chilling diversity of anti-Semitism today."

--ForeWord Reviews

"The present collection lays bare the double-think, identifies modern libels, and counters them with historical knowledge; it maps paths for further retrieval of such knowledge. It grants its audience a fuller understanding of the resurgent antisemitism not only as a social but also as an intellectual phenomenon, a nexus of different strands of cultural history."

--Modern Judaism

"This new book... comes as a bright flare of warning about the renewal of the ancient hatred of Jews... Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in wiping out European Jewry. Today his goal has gone global."

--National Catholic Reporter

"The authors make their case for paying closer attention to contemporary expressions of antisemitism. Interested academic and general readers will want to do so through this book."

The breadth of the inquiry is astonishing..."

--Jewish Post & Opinion

"More than an excellent survey, Resurgent Antisemitism heralds the emergence of an international study of anti-Semitism, replete with both grand established figures and emerging young stars."

--Brandeis Brief

"Resurgent Antisemitism is an important study and includes numerous interesting voices, not merely academics, but also activists and writers."
