About this Item

Softbound. 8vo. XXXIX, 281 pages. 24 cm. First edition. An "Anthology of writings by Jewish thinkers on Jews as a race. Jews were famously the targets of racial thinking in modern times, but they also engaged in it. Many Jews used the methods of racial science to analyze Jewish history and contemporary life. Such discourse was in part apologetic, a response to racial antisemitism; however, it also served other political and ideological needs. Focusing primarily on works written at the height of the racial hygiene and eugenics movements, this diverse anthology shows how Jewish scholars and popular writers in Europe, North America, and Palestine raised fascinating and thorny issues about the nature and history of racial discourse. Designed for class adoption, the volume contains helpful annotations and a contextual introduction by the editor. " (Publishers description) .
