About the Author

"This book belongs in the collection of any library interest in Judaica cultural studies, the history of hate speech, and media studies in general."--Steven M./I>--Steven M. Wasserstrom "Oregon Historical Quarterly "

"This is a book that teaches us how easy it was to spread hatred in the absence of critical thinking and questioning. This is a lesson for us all that we ignore at our own peril."--Marty Zelenietz, Israel Philatelist

"Hatemail, with its powerful visuals and brief explanations that contextualize these visuals, is a work to be treasured. It is also one to be dreaded and feared."--Michael Berenbaum, director of the Sigi Ziering Institute at American Jewish University and author of Not Your Father's Anti-Semitism-- (03/05/2013)

"Among the best ways to determine the nature and degree of bigotry in a society is through its popular folk culture, and there are few better sources of such culture than picture postcards. As a postcard collector myself, I can only marvel at what Salo Aizenberg has collected in this volume. These remarkable postcards will make you laugh, cry, and clench your fist in anger."--Alan Dershowitz, author of The Trials of Zion-- (03/05/2013)
"These postcards are a powerful and disturbing reminder that hatred can be as marketable as a commodity as a scenic view."--Historical Novels Review--Historical Novels Review
"Hatemail is highly recommended for academic libraries and synagogues. The pictures also may be suitable for high school libraries as a classroom supplement."--Association of Jewish Libraries Review Newsletter--Association of Jewish Libraries Review Newsletter
