Globalising Hatred : The New Anti-semitism
Antisemitism seems to belong in the past, but far from being consigned to history books, it is a powerful, contemporary global ideology that's alive and thriving. From the university campus to the dinner-party table, from the intellectual to the suicide bomber, the new antisemitism is international in its reach and capable of taking different forms. Denis Macshane examines this new anisemitism in all its current manifestations: in national and European politics; at state levels; in terrorist organisations; in popular mythology; in personal attacks on ordinary Jews. GLOBALISING HATRED is a compelling cry for tolerance, and a resolution to throw harsh light on this threat to liberal values and world peace.

The warning to progressives - to purge their thinking of all trace of a vile ideology - rings out as clear as a bell. -- Boyd Tonkin INDEPENDENT
