Product description


"Historians who would integrate Polish history into the history of Europe must come to terms with the enormously complex topic of antisemitism. This book meets that challenge admirably, and is simply indispensable. The team of scholars that Robert Blobaum has assembled includes some of the very best writers on modern Polish history. The result is an unusually coherent volume, seamlessly uniting American and Polish perspectives to ask us to examine the very meaning of Polishness. Antisemitism appears here in all its nationalist, political, ideological, and religious complexity. Antisemitism and its Opponents is essential reading for scholars of Poland and of Jewish history. Any student of European history, too, will find that this book significantly advances our understanding of one of the central problems of modernity."—Padraic Kenney, University of Colorado, Boulder

"This state-of-the-art book about modern Polish antisemitism tackles some of the most difficult questions in the still highly sensitive history of Polish-Jewish relations. Robert Blobaum has assembled an impressive team of authors from Poland and the West. Their scholarship is dispassionate, learned, and takes advantage of newly accessible sources. This important volume marks a new stage in the post-Jedwabne debate."—Norman M. Naimark, Stanford University
