Hardcover. 552 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 1.2in.Antisemitism: An Annotated Bibliography includes periodical works published throughout the world about antisemitism from the ancient period up to the present. It lists books, dissertations, masters theses, and articles from periodicals and collections from a diverse range of disciplines - history, literature, art, psychology, sociology, anthropology. Antisemitism is defined as antagonism toward Jews and Judaism as expressed in writings (e. g. the New Testament, polemical literature, works of fiction), in the visual arts (e. g. art, caricatures, films), and in actions (e. g. discriminatory legislation, pogroms, massacres, the Holocaust). The bibliography includes all works dealing with th. . . e Holocaust period (1933-1945) - i. e. on antisemitic ideology, policy, and attitudes, as well as on the Jewish experience (memoirs, memorial books, etc. ). The listings are compiled mainly from the holdings of the Jewish National and University Library in Jerusalem which receives most of the works published throughout the world dealing with Judaica. The bibliography has been systematically arranged. All titles are annotated. Indexes of authors and subjects represent a further means of access. The Association of Jewish Libraries (USA) selected this work for the Best Bibliography Award of 1994. Many reviewers have singled it out for commendation. The bibliographic staff is comprised of academics from diverse disciplines, with expertise in Jewish history. Each staff member has a working knowledge of at least four languages, and together they cover material in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Hungarian, Dutch, Hebrew and Yiddish. Experts in otherlanguages (e. g. Czech, Swedish, Danish, Japanese) are called upon when needed. The objectives of the Bibliographic Project can be outlined as follows: - Authoritative: The bibliography as a whole will reflect current literature and research on antisemitism. At the same time it will specifically avoid emphasizing or endorsing any particular point of view. To ensure this, reputable scholars comprise the staff of the Bibliographic Project. - Comprehensive: The bibliography substantially covers the literature about antisemitism and provides separate sections for all major sub-areas. - Annotated: An informative abstract in English is provided for each entry. In all cases, the annotation gives details of the period, the country, the persons, and the actions central to the work described. - Multilingual: Publications on the phenomenon of antisemitism have appeared in many languages. The bibliography enables scholars and others to have access to all published material. An English translation is given for titles in languages other than German, French, Italian, or Spanish. - Accurate: A sufficient level of expertise accompanies both the process of selecting entries and writing abstracts to ensure a high standard of accuracy. Many scholars are engaged in research on antisemitism and in explanations of the phenomenon. In recent years the number of publications dealing with antisemitism has increased. The investigation and documentation of antisemitism will continue to be important in the future. This cumulative, annotated bibliography is a significant aid to further research and documentation.
