Editorial Reviews


"MacShane has done a service by giving us a handbook of the signs" -- CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS, full page review TLS 21 November 08 "makes a powerful case that the struggle against anti-semitism remains the struggle against totalitarianism it was in the past." -- NICK RENNISON SUNDAY TIMES, 23 November 08 "Globalising Hatred poses an important question that cannot, by its nature, yet be answered - and that we must hope will not be. Is anti-Semitism capable of being fanned again into something broadbased and virulent, so that Jews who have felt safe for decades must again feel insecure?" -- JOHN LLOYD FINANCIAL TIMES, 8 November 08 "Bigotry, dogma and lies are three of the essential planks of anti-semitism in all its forms, and as long as radical Islam has anti-semitism at its heart, it will be incompatible with any decent social order." -- ALASDAIR PALMER SUNDAY TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE SEVEN, 9 November 08 "presents ample evidence of increased hostility in nearly every country with a large Jewish community - and in those without one, too... a small klaxon of a book." THE OBSERVER, 26 October 08 "MacShane alerts us to the way in which Arab opposition to Israel has led to an Islamic antisemitism that has escalated the territorial struggle in the MIddle East to a worldwide battle against all Jews... As someone who supports a Palestinian state, his cri de coeur is that "it is, not until the cause of Palestine is divorced from the antisemitism that it will fully flourish." -- JONATHAN ROMAIN THE INDEPENDENT, 17 October 08 "I am full of admiration for Denis MacShane's renewed attempt to tackle the dilemma; the best on the subject, I think, since Jean-Paul Satre's classic text on the subject 60 years ago. Denis MacShane has an impeccable record of fighting racial intolerance and prejudice." -- GEOFFREY GOODMAN TRIBUNE, 31 October 08 "very readable... does not beat about the bush." JEWISH CHRONICLE, 23 October 08

25 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on November 21, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Denis MacShane is a Labor member of the British Parliament. This book grew out of the United Kingdom's 2005 All-Party Commission of Enquiry on antisemitism chaired by the author. He investigates and exposes the virus in the UK, Europe and on the global stage with reference to its political, religious, racist, social, secondary or anti-Zionist characteristics that are not mutually exclusive; they tend to appear in clusters depending on the ideology and location of the perps. MacShane discovered disturbing evidence of how the oldest hatred stalks the globe in countries with Jewish communities and even in those without. This work is a valuable addition to the recent books by Bernard Harrison, Gabriel Schoenfeld and Walter Laqueur.

His research revealed three main sources: (a) state-sanctioned antisemitism (b) terrorist formations (c) political movements. The phenomenon serves as a link & mobilizing force between extremists around the ideological spectrum. It uses Holocaust denial and the idea of the worldwide conspiracy, an updated version of the accursed fabrication The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, as two of its weapons. The greatest danger of its resurgence is the way it undermines Enlightenment values, threatening all people of good will.
