The ISGAP Papers: Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective, Volume Two

Authored by Various
Edited by Charles Asher Small
Edition: 1

The "Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective" seminar series of the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP) continues to generate a steady flow of high-quality presentations and papers on a wide range of topics relating to antisemitism. Between 2012 and 2014, ISGAP hosted seminars at Harvard University, McGill University, Columbia University Law School, Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus in New York, the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, the University of Miami, Sapienza University (Rome), and other academic institutions. The present volume - a worthy follow-up to The Yale Papers: Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective (2015) - contains a selection of papers presented during this period. Like the seminars on which they are based, these papers cover topics that have profound implications for our understanding of contemporary antisemitism, its impact on Jews and non-Jews, and our efforts to combat this irrational yet enduring prejudice.
