German Question/Jewish Question: Revolutionary Antisemitism in Germany from Kant to Wagner - Princeton Legacy Library (Paperback)Paul Lawrence Rose (author)
- Not available
In this compelling narrative of antisemitism in German thought, Paul Rose proposes a fresh view of the topic. Beginning with an examination of the attitudes of Martin Luther, he challenges distinctions between theologically derived (medieval) and secular, "racial" (modern) antisemitism, arguing that there is an unbroken chain of antisemitic feeling between the two periods.
Originally published in 1990.

"Rose persuasively demonstrates that for almost all [German revolutionary thinkers of the right and left], the German Question was ensnarled in the Jewish Question, and that a deep kinship between left and right was expressed in the loaded opposition between Deutschtum and Judentum."---Robert Alter, The New Republic
"An intensely interesting, learned, and combative book."---Geoffrey Wheatcroft, The Times Literary Supplement
