Antisemitism before and since the Holocaust : altered contexts and recent perspectives / Anthony McElligott, Jeffrey Herf, editors
- Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillan, 2017
Includes bibliographical references and index
Divided into five discrete sections, this book examines the issue of Holocaust denial, and in some cases "Holocaust inversion" in North America, Europe, and the Middle East and its relationship to the history of antisemitism before and since the Holocaust. It thus offers both a historical and contemporary perspective. This volume includes observations by leading scholars, delivering powerful, even controversial essays by scholars who are reporting from the ?frontline.? It offers a discussion on the relationship between Christianity and Islam, as well as the historical and contemporary issues of antisemitism in the USA, Europe, and the Middle East. This book explores how all of these issues contribute consciously or otherwise to contemporary antisemitism. The chapters of this volume do not necessarily provide a unity of argument ? nor should they. Instead, they expose the plurality of positions within the academy and reflect the robust discussions that occur on the subject.
