"[A fervent and brilliant challenge to ant-Semitism."
—The New York Times
"A review . . . can merely indicate the humanity, the compassion, and the suggestive brilliance of Sartre's writing. His essay is a genuine contribution to contemporary thought; it will be read and reread in years to come."
"Still a monument of postwar writing on anti-Semitism . . . Michael Walzer's fine introduction will help current readers sift out what remains relevant from Sartre's work for considering the variants of anti-Semitism haunting the world today."
—Elisabeth Young Bruehl
"Sartre's account of anti-Semitism is an acknowledged classic, based in large measure on assimilated Jews whom he personally knew. Michael Walzer's essay provides significant balance to Sartre's brilliant analysis."

This is a pretty insightful book on hate, and the seeds of Sartre's philosophy on identity find soil here. A lot of people know that being Anti-Semetic is foolish, but Sartre illustrates pretty well why it's foolish on a lot of different dimensions in respect to the concept of identity. In my opinion it also gives the reader some insight into the history of Anti-Semiticism.
