This Very Short Introduction examines and untangles the various
strands of antisemitism seen throughout history, from medieval
religious conflict to 'new' antisemitism in the 21st century.
Steven Beller reveals how the phenomenon grew as a political and
ideological movement in the 19th century, how it reached it its
dark apogee in the worst genocide in modern history - the Holocaust
- and how antisemitism still persists around the world today. ABOUT
