Dating back millennia, anti-Semitism has been called "the longest hatred." Thought to be vanquished after the horrors of the Holocaust, in recent decades it has once again become a disturbing presence in many parts of the world. Resurgent Antisemitism presents original research that elucidates the social, intellectual, and ideological roots of the "new" anti-Semitism and the place it has come to occupy in the public sphere. By exploring the sources, goals, and consequences of today's anti-Semitism and its relationship to the past, the book contributes to an understanding of this phenomenon that may help diminish its appeal and mitigate its more harmful effects.

"Indispensable to our understanding of contemporary antisemitism and how these new variations are informed and empowered by classical themes... a key text that helps to frame the intellectual debates now developing in the new field of Antisemitism Studies." Catherine D. Chatterley, author of Disenchantment: George Steiner and the Meaning of Western Culture after Auschwitz"Extremely interesting, timely, well researched, and well argued... the book makes a major contribution to our understanding of a very important and deeply troubling issue." Maurice Samuels, Yale University
