Featuring “Antisemitism” by Deborah E. Lipstadt.
Presented by Annette Gladwin.
Deborah Lipstadt, a professor in Holocaust studies, gained international fame after she was victorious in a libel trial in 1996 when David Irving claimed she had called him a Holocaust denier.
In the book we will be discussing, Lipstadt gives us a penetrating and provocative analysis of antisemitism, focusing on its current, virulent incarnations on both the political right and left, from college campuses to white nationalist movements, and by anti-Jewish terrorists in Europe.
Where is all this hatred coming from? Is there any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing antisemitism? What role has the anti-Zionist movement played? And what can be done to combat the latest manifestations of an ancient hatred? Lipstadt gives us her own superbly reasoned and brilliantly argued responses to these troubling questions.
