Description

In this analysis of racism in late nineteenth-century France, anti-Semitism is studied in its social context as an indicator and symptom of social change. The author provides a more general analysis of anti-Semitic ideology in France, and he concludes with a study of the Jewish response to this challenge.

'An excellent historical, sociological and psychological examination of anti-semitism ... even those who believe they understand the mechanics of anti-semitism will benefit from a reading of this book.' Jerusalem Post 'An unprecedentedly complete compendium of evidence ... exceptionally well written.' The Observer
