Surveying the landscape of contemporary European anti-Semitism, a leading French thinker describes its major figures, the role of the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, the Islamic influence in promoting anti-Zionism, and the blindness, complacency, or complicity of various institutions, groups, and individuals. Translated from the French by Patrick Camiller. With a Foreword by Radu Ioanid. "This urgently awaited study of the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe must be read by all those who wish to denounce and fight its poisonous effects."-Elie Wiesel.
