The persistence of anti-Semitism is a phenomenon that challenges Jewish historians to make ethical judgments a part of historical analysis. This comprehensive collection meets that challenge as its authors provide fresh insights into the complexities of anti-Semitism for students, scholars, and general readers. The eight essays probe deeply into the dynamics of anti-Semitism as it has appeared in all periods of history -- from the ancient world to twentieth-century America. Each major era is detailed in sharply focused analyses by first-rate scholars, each expert in a specific historical period. - Jacket flap.
