An argumentative, controversial analysis of the new antisemitism, by the historian who defeated David Irving in court. Anti-Jewish violence and vandalism have been on the rise in Europe in the last five years. Deborah Lipstadt asks, `Does this mean we are returning to the brutality of the 1930s?' `No', is her initial answer, quickly followed by: `It's complicated.' Connecting different currents in contemporary culture, such as the resurgence of racist right-wing nationalisms, left-liberal tolerance of hostility to Jews, the plight of the Palestinians, the relationship of antisemitism to anti-Zionism, and the rise of Islamic extremism, Lipstadt explores how contradictory forces have found common scapegoats. Lucid and convincing, Antisemitism will calm the fearful, rouse the complacent, and demand a response from readers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`To say anything worthwhile about antisemitism you need calm, lucidity, intelligence, and a faultless moral compass, all powered by a proper feeling for racial justice. Deborah Lipstadt has the entire skillset. That's why her new book is so welcome, so necessary, and so clear.' -David Hare `Antisemitism comes in different shades, all of them ugly-not least when it comes from those who regard themselves as champions of liberation. To fight this abomination in all its shades, Deborah Lipstadt has given us a sage, sober, and lucid manual for the perplexed and willfully blind. An outstandingly useful book.' -Todd Gitlin, author of The Sixties: Years of Hope, Days of Rage
