9780810858688: Dictionary of Antisemitism: From the Earliest Times to the Present

The term 'antisemitism' was coined by Wilhelm Marr in 1879. Marr's secular, political racism existed inconsistently alongside his religious anti-Semitism. His self-proclaimed goal was 'to free Christianity from the yoke of Judaism.' While the term might not have existed before the 19th century, the persecution of the Jewish people dates back more than three thousand years. The Dictionary of Antisemitism is the first and only dictionary ever published that is dedicated solely to this subject. Spanning 3,000 years of antagonism to Jews, the dictionary details not only 'the longest hatred,' but also the most widespread, covering the five major continents. A comprehensive scholarly introduction discusses the definitions, causes, and varieties of antisemitism before the dictionary gets into the specifics. The dictionary section itself contains 2,500 entries, ranging from 'Aaron of Lincoln' to 'Zyklon.' Entries can be found on all forms of antisemitism, such as ancient, medieval, and modern antisemitism; pagan, Christian, and Muslim antisemitism; and religious, economic, psychosocial, racial, cultural, and political antisemitism. This essential dictionary provides comprehensive coverage on this compelling subject, and as such, it will remain important for years to come.

About the Author:

Robert Michael is Professor Emeritus of European History at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, serves on the graduate faculty of Florida Gulf Coast University, and has authored a dozen books on the History of Antisemitism and the Holocaust. Philip Rosen, former Educational Director of the Goodwin Holocaust Museum in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is the author of several books and chapters in books on the Holocaust. He served on the editorial committee of the New Jersey Curriculum Committee on the Holocaust and Genocide and currently teaches at Temple and Arcadia Universities.

Review:

The long history of anti-Semitism throughout the world is documented in the new Dictionary of Antisemitism... (Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, No. 55 (Spring 2007))

The dictionary is undoubtedly a great work, a great contribution....The authors are to be commended and gratefully acknowledged for the readability, reliability, and precision of their agonizing work. (Dr. Jack D. Spiro, Harry Lyons Chair in Judaic Culture, Center for Judaic Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University)

This work fills a major gap in how we can better understand the odious phenomenon of antisemitism. Michael and Rosen have performed a signal service to researchers, teachers and students, all of whom should express their gratitude for the enormous undertaking completed by these two scholars. (Dr. Paul Bartrop, Department of History, Bialik College, Australia)

Robert Michael's and Philip Rosen's Dictionary of Antisemitism is one of the most important reference resources of the 21st century. This is a reference work that needs to be in the hands of anyone researching, studying or teaching about discrimination and hate. Knowledge is a crucial weapon in the struggle against intolerance, hate and bigotry and we now have a big gun on our side. The Dictionary of Antisemitism should be in libraries and schools all over the world and translated into as many languages as possible. This work has been a long time in coming and I for one am grateful it is now here. (Samuel M. Edelman, College of Arts and Science, University of Judaism, Los Angeles)

The most useful and comprehensive compendium on the subject of antisemitism that I know. (David Scrase, Center for Holocaust Studies, University of Vermont)

Deeply learned, always lucid, this volume will prove an indispensable reference for comprehending history's anti-covenant, from Roman times through the medieval world to the modern traumas and the present global jihad. (Steven F. Sage, Research Fellow (2005), Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum)

Robert Michael's [and Philip Rosen]'s Dictionary of Antisemitism is an invaluable resource that belongs on the desk of all who study or are concerned about antisemitism, past and present. (Dr. Eunice G. Pollack, University of North Texas)

Robert Michael's and Philip Rosen's Dictionary of Antisemitism is a marvelous tool...For its scope and depth, future students of anti-Semitism will find this book indispensable. (Frederick M. Schweitzer, Director of the Manhattan College Holocaust Center)

The wide range of entries, a useful introduction, and numerous citations make [this] an essential ready-reference source that is recommended for public and academic libraries. (Booklist, 1 June 2007)

Recommended. (CHOICE, August 2007)
