Statement of ResponsibilityDaniel Jonah Goldhagen.
Creators & ContributorsGoldhagen, Daniel Jonah (author)
Summary"Daniel Jonah Goldhagen reveals the unprecedented global form of [antisemitism], its strategic use by states, and its powerful appeal to individuals and groups. Provocatively examining precisely what antisemitism is, Goldhagen establishes a disquieting new paradigm for understanding it. Further exploring the dimensions of its threat, he explains how technology has fueled the flames that had been smoldering prior to the millennium--with devastating results. In dissecting how antisemitism has thrived internationally in an age of institutions like the UN, leading NGOs, and a broad coalition of hostile states, while being abetted by thinly veiled or brazen anti-Jewish sentiments found around the world in the media and academia, Goldhagen offers those who care about justice and morality a road map to this most vexing of prejudices." —Book jacket
