9780312218041: A Rumor About the Jews: Reflections on Antisemitism and

"The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" is among the most infamous documents of antisemitism. A forgery created in Russia by the czarist secret police and quickly translated into a host of languages, it portrayed Judaism as a worldwide conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of Christian civilization. The appearance of the Protocols sparked a number of bloody pogroms and it helped shape the thinking of right-wing movements worldwide from Hitler's Nazis to contemporary antisemitic groups in Russia, the Middle East and the United States. A work of intellectual history, A Rumor About the Jews expresses the connection between antisemitism and the overarching political assault upon the enlightenment legacy taking the reader on a historical journey that provides a new and penetrating understanding of an insidious ideology and its broader implications.

From the Publisher:

"Finally there is a comprehensive, contemporary look at the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion! Recently there has been a reprinting of studies of this odd but influential work from the distant past and a reediting of the English text, but no scholar until Stephen Eric Bronner has risked taking on the complex and convoluted history of the book, its creation, and its reception. This is a major addition to the study of anti-Semitism in the twentieth century. Given the extremely long life of the Protocols and its constant republication it will be valuable (sadly) into the next century too." -SANDER GILMAN, University of Chicago

About the Author:

Stephen Eric Bronner is professor of political science and comparative literature at Rutgers University. He is the author of several books including Moments of Decision: Political History and the Crises of Radicalism (winner of the Michael A. Harrington Prize). He lives in New York City.
