High-class paper collection Jan. 30 2007
By Andreas Umland - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This collection of papers presented at a conference on comparative dimensions of antisemitism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in June 1995 will be welcomed by scholars from a number of disciplines and substantive foci. It assembles a wide array of contributions in the fields of cultural, literary, gender and religious studies, ancient, modern and contemporary history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, as well as political science from twenty-three scholars.

The papers deal with as different subject matters as demonization of the "other" in visual arts (Ziva Amisha-Maisels), antisemitism and other -isms in the Graeco-Roman world (Daniel R. Schwartz), Jews and Christians in the Middle Ages (Israel J. Yuval) and Medieval Muslim Thought (Hava Lazarus-Yafeh), or images in the antisemitisms of the Third Republic (Richard I. Cohen), Nazi Germany (Philippe Burrin), Poland (Yisrael Gutman), Arab-Muslim world (Rivka Yadlin) and contemporary Germany (Robert S. Wistrich). The collection also addresses directly at least two important public and academic debates: the controversy around Daniel J. Goldhagen's Hitler's Willing Executioners, and the discussion about Stephane Courtois' Black Book of Communism.

The largely excellent contributions to this book are far too varied and sophisticated to do justice to them in a short review. It should be pointed out once more that this volume constitutes a useful collection of divergent observations and theories on the issue of xenophobia throughout human history. It should find a warm welcome among scholars from many different disciplines, and will influence future debates on the roots and nature of exclusionism and genocide.
