Format: Paperback
The worst riots in recent Norwegian history are presented here in an account by a man who experienced them firsthand in the streets of Oslo. Written in an accessible and engaging fashion, Eirik Eiglad (who co-edits the social ecology journal Communalism) contributes, along with valuable eye-witness information, telling analyses of the repulsive ideologies that fueled these anti-Jewish riots. Throughout `The Anti-Jewish Riots,' Eiglad capably explores the relationship of Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism within the Left, along with other pertinent issues, while offering many invaluable insights along the way. What is particularly interesting about the perspective presented in this work is that it is leftist. If voices from the Left have been eerily silent (or simply too few and too quiet) in denouncing the morally bankrupt acceptance of Anti-Zionism within its parameters, Eiglad speaks clearly and loudly so. The creation of a serious, principled, international Left cannot be taken seriously if it does not oppose nationalism, in all forms, outright. As Eiglad argues, opposition to certain nation-states (in this case Israel) is not liberatory: it is hateful.

Serious leftists cannot permit themselves to ignore this book: Make no mistake, the significance of Eiglad's work reaches far beyond the borders of Norway and the neighborhood of Scandinavia.
