An account of one of history's darkest tendencies, following the development of anti-Judaism across three millennia. In this magisterial history, David Nirenberg explores anti-Judaism from antiquity to the present, from the Ancient Egyptians who resented their Jewish neighbours to the ideas of Voltaire and Marx, thereby revealing it to be a mode of thought deeply embedded in the Western tradition. With intolerance and racism on the rise across the West, the central argument of David Nirenberg's groundbreaking study – that to imagine anti-Judaism to be confined to the margins of our society is to be dangerously complacent – is as urgent and as timely as it has ever been.
