Description

This text explores the causes of prejudice against Jews, foreign workers, refugees and emigrant Germans in contemporary Germany. Legge challenges the notion that German xenophobia is rooted in economic causes. He sees a more complex foundation for German prejudice, particularly in a reunified Germany where perceptions of the "other" sometimes vary widely between east and west - a product of a traditional racism rooted in the German past. Legge offers a disturbing picture of a conflicted country and a prejudice that not only affects Jew but also fuels a larger anti-foreign sentiment.
