Antisemitism: Myth and Hate from Antiquity to the Present


Antisemitism: Myth and Hate from Antiquity to the Present Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this provocative book, Marvin Perry and Frederick M. Schweitzer analyze the lies, misperceptions, and myths about Jews and Judaism that antisemites have propagated throughout the centuries. The book examines ancient and medieval myths central to the history of antisemitism: Jews as "Christ-killers," instruments of Satan, and ritual murderers of Christian children. It also explores the scapegoating of Jews in the modern world as conspirators bent on world domination; extortionists who manufactured the Holocaust as a hoax designed to gain reparation payments from Germany; and the leaders of the slave trade that put Africa in chains. No other book has focused its attention exclusively on a thematic discussion of historic and contemporary antisemitic myths, covering such an expansive scope of time, and allowing for such a painstaking level of exemplification.

About the Author

Frederick M. Schweitzer is Professor of History at Manhattan College in the Riverdale section of the Bronx. He is the co-editor, with Marvin Perry, of Jewish-Christian Encounters Over the Centuries: Symbiosis, Prejudice, Holocaust, Dialogue and author of A History of the Jews Since the First Century A.D.

Marvin Perry taught history at Baruch College, City University of New York, for many years. His books include An Intellectual History of Modern Europe and Arnold Toynbee and the Western Tradition.
