Description - Antisemitism and Modernity by Hyam Maccoby

The subject of Anti-Semitism, not long ago thought to be a dead issue, has been revised due to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. This book traces the now topical discussion of the origins of Anti-Semitism, and especially its development in the modern world. The book examines how it is that this medieval prejudice has proved so lasting and potent and by what means it managed to bridge the gap between medievalism and Enlightenment. Many of the most respected Enlightenment figures, including Voltaire, were dedicated to tolerance and pluralism, and yet retained virulent Anti-Semitism, leading to questions of whether the roots of Anti-Semitism religious. Maccoby explores these issues and many more, investigating the history of Anti-Semitism, tracing it's to religious origins, and showing how is has had the ability to adapt itself to new circumstances in the modern world.
