Summary Since the 9/11/01 attacks on America, anti-Semitism has been on the rise, its roots firmly anchored in centuries-old prejudices. Schweitzer and Perry analyze the lies, misperceptions, and myths about Jews and Judaism that have been spread throughout the centuries. Beginning in antiquity and continuing into the present day, the authors explore major anti-Semitic themes: Jews as murderers of Christ; Jews as both evil capitalists and evil communists; the "myth" of the Holocaust; and the Nation of Islam's hatred of the Jews.
