MEDIA REVIEWS
The long history of anti-Semitism throughout the world is documented in the new Dictionary of Antisemitism... * Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, No. 55 (Spring 2007) *
The dictionary is undoubtedly a great work, a great contribution....The authors are to be commended and gratefully acknowledged for the readability, reliability, and precision of their agonizing work. -- Dr. Jack D. Spiro, Harry Lyons Chair in Judaic Culture, Center for Judaic Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University
This work fills a major gap in how we can better understand the odious phenomenon of antisemitism. Michael and Rosen have performed a signal service to researchers, teachers and students, all of whom should express their gratitude for the enormous undertaking completed by these two scholars. -- Dr. Paul Bartrop, Department of History, Bialik College, Australia
Robert Michael's and Philip Rosen's Dictionary of Antisemitism is one of the most important reference resources of the 21st century. This is a reference work that needs to be in the hands of anyone researching, studying or teaching about discrimination and hate. Knowledge is a crucial weapon in the struggle against intolerance, hate and bigotry and we now have a big gun on our side. The Dictionary of Antisemitism should be in libraries and schools all over the world and translated into as many languages as possible. This work has been a long time in coming and I for one am grateful it is now here. -- Samuel M. Edelman, College of Arts and Science, University of Judaism, Los Angeles
The most useful and comprehensive compendium on the subject of antisemitism that I know. -- David Scrase, Center for Holocaust Studies, University of Vermont

Sage, Research Fellow (2005), Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
