Editorial Reviews

Review

Steven Baum has written an insightful study of the social psychology and pathology of the world's oldest hatred, antisemitism. That it has returned virulently to many parts of the world, within living memory of the Holocaust, is a phenomenon of great significance and danger. This book could not have appeared at a more fateful time. (Lord Jonathan Sacks, chief rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth)

This important book is a meritorious contribution to our understanding of anti-Semitism . . . [and is] a lively and interesting read. . . . This very original and caring work tells a basic story about the psychology of our very species. In this very intelligent and humane work, psychologist Steven Baum teaches us that the subject is no light matter, neither for the victims, nor for the perpetrators, and that depending on its severity, antisemitism constitutes a diagnosable state of developmental retardation and/or a major psychopathological condition. (Israel W. Charny)

Baum provides a fascinating and relatively concise history of anti-Semitic legends, myths, laws, and policies....Baum's book is a good step in the direction of advocating that anti-Semitism is a viable and crucial field of research for psychologists and sociologists that is too often ignored or overlooked. It serves as a call for everyone to recognize that ethnic and religious prejudice is a wider and deeper problem than is often recognized by the social sciences, both in terms of the groups involved as targets and perpetrators and the explanations provided for the behavior.
(PsycCRITIQUES)
