Antisemitism and the Politics of History makes an essential contribution to rethinking “antisemitism.” Launched by David Engel’s prod to scholars to avoid using the term “antisemitism” since it often obscures more than it reveals, this set of essays interrogates the truisms, assumptions, and conventions widespread in both the academic study and popular understanding of antisemitism. Ranging across empirical analyses from the ancient world to the present, discussed alongside cutting-edge theory, a host of assumptions are interrogated so that readers are treated to new insights and new possibilities in how to think about how we think about “antisemitism.”
