Confronting Antisemitism on the Left aims to build on the legacy of Steve Cohen's That's Funny, You Don't Look Antisemitic, first published in 1984 and republished by No Pasaran Media in 2019.

It draws extensively on Cohen's work, presenting a series of essays analysing the roots and contemporary construction of antisemitism on the political left, tracing its origins to primitive critiques of finance and capitalism, and, more recently, to a conspiracy-theorist form of anti-Zionism originating in Stalinism.

Randall argues that a consistently democratic politics of working-class solidarity and equal rights can confront and overcome it.

About Daniel Randall

Daniel Randall is a railway worker, trade union rep, and socialist activist based in London. He is a member of the Labour Party and a supporter of the revolutionary socialist group Alliance for Workers' Liberty (AWL). He was written extensively about antisemitism on the left, and edited the AWL pamphlet 'Left Antisemitism: What it is and How to Fight it'.

The AWL and its predecessor organisations have had a critical analysis of left antisemitism for over 30 years. Members of Socialist Organiser, the AWL's immediate antecedent, helped promote Steve Cohen's 'That's Funny, You Don't Look Antisemitic' on the British left when it was first published in 1984.

While Randall's own Jewish identity inevitably informs his work and analysis, he endeavours to avoid an identitarian frame, and attempts to approach the question of left antisemitism historically and theoretically.
