Description

A Convenient Hatred chronicles a very particular hatred through powerful stories that allow readers to see themselves in the tarnished mirror of history. It raises important questions about the consequences of our assumptions and beliefs and the ways we, as individuals and as members of a society, make distinctions between us and them, right and wrong, good and evil. These questions are both universal and particular.

Review quote

"Many of the famous villains of literature were compelling orators, as was Hitler, using the power of speech to feed their frustrations and hatred into their audiences. So long as we have language, we will have its abusers on behalf of their pernicious programs, and the need to challenge them will remain. "A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitism" will make both a valuable and timely contribution to our understanding of this subject."-Lawrence L. Langer, author of "Holocaust Testimonies: The Ruins of Memory", winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism
