"Anti-Zionism on Campus is a tour de force. It accurately exposes the depth of anti-Israel bias on campuses (primarily in the U.S., but with several insightful chapters also focusing on the British, Australian, Canadian, and South African campus climate). It also underscores the high price and personal risk that comes with taking on this rising tide of anti-Zionism."--Legal Insurrection

"Though these testimonials acknowledge that free academic inquiry can--and should--include criticism of any nation's policies, the writers make a persuasive case that the BDS movement is a dangerous amalgam of speech suppression and thinly veiled anti-Semitism. . . . Recommended."--Choice

"The single biggest crisis facing the academy is the attack against free speech, objective truth, rigorous scholarship, and campus activity--all under the pretense and guise of progressive identity politics. No other book covers the politics and strategies of BDS and the insidious motives of those who are its champions better."--Thane Rosenbaum, author of How Sweet It Is!

"These essays make a huge contribution to our understanding of the deleterious impact of anti-Israel activism on contemporary academia in the United States and around the world. The breadth of these essays is breath-taking, their poignancy is heartbreaking, and their analysis is astute."--Kenneth L. Marcus, author of The Definition of Anti-Semitism
