A Concise History of American Antisemitism shows how Christianity's negative views of Jews pervaded American history from colonial times to the present. The book describes the European background to American anti-Semitism, then divides American history into time periods, and examines the anti-Semitic ideas, personalities, and literature in each period. It also demonstrates that anti-Semitism led to certain behaviors in some United States officials that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust. Clear and forceful, A Concise History of American Antisemitism is an important work for undergraduate course use and for the general public interested in the roots of the current rash of anti-Semitism.

Antisemitism, as hatred of Jews and Judaism, has been a central problem of Western civilization for millennia, and its history continues to invite debate. This Very Short Introduction untangles the history of the phenomenon, from ancient religious conflict to 'new' antisemitism in the 21st century. Steven Beller reveals how Antisemitism grew as a political and ideological movement in the 19th century, how it reached its dark apogee in the worst genocide in modern history - the Holocaust - and how Antisemitism still persists around the world today. In the new edition of this thought-provoking Very Short Introduction, Beller brings his examination of this complex and still controversial issue up to date with a discussion of Antisemitism in light of the 2008 financial crash, the Arab Spring, and the on-going crisis between Israel and Palestine. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

A groundbreaking history of the practice of Jewish name changing in the 20th century, showcasing just how much is in a name Our thinking about Jewish name changing tends to focus on clichés: ambitious movie stars who adopted glamorous new names or insensitive Ellis Island officials who changed immigrants’ names for them. But as Kirsten Fermaglich elegantly reveals, the real story is much more profound. Scratching below the surface, Fermaglich examines previously unexplored name change petitions to upend the clichés, revealing that in twentieth-century New York City, Jewish name changing was actually a broad-based and voluntary behavior: thousands of ordinary Jewish men, women, and children legally changed their names in order to respond to an upsurge of antisemitism. Rather than trying to escape their heritage or “pass” as non-Jewish, most name-changers remained active members of the Jewish community. While name changing allowed Jewish families to avoid antisemitism and achieve white middle-class status, the practice also created pain within families and became a stigmatized, forgotten aspect of American Jewish culture. This first history of name changing in the United States offers a previously unexplored window into American Jewish life throughout the twentieth century. A Rosenberg by Any Other Name demonstrates how historical debates about immigration, antisemitism and race, class mobility, gender and family, the boundaries of the Jewish community, and the power of government are reshaped when name changing becomes part of the conversation. Mining court documents, oral histories, archival records, and contemporary literature, Fermaglich argues convincingly that name changing had a lasting impact on American Jewish culture. Ordinary Jews were forced to consider changing their names as they saw their friends, family, classmates, co-workers, and neighbors do so. Jewish communal leaders and civil rights activists needed to consider name changers as part of the Jewish community, making name changing a pivotal part of early civil rights legislation. And Jewish artists created critical portraits of name changers that lasted for decades in American Jewish culture. This book ends with the disturbing realization that the prosperity Jews found by changing their names is not as accessible for the Chinese, Latino, and Muslim immigrants who wish to exercise that right today.

In 1965, the Second Vatican Council formally issued a historic document titled Nostra Aetate (In Our Time. It was an attempt to frame the relationship between the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish people. Never before had an ecumenical council attempted such a task. The landmark document issued by the Council and proclaimed by Pope Paul VI precipitated a Copernican revolution in Catholic-Jewish relations and started a process that has spread to the Protestant and Orthodox worlds as well. This volume, consisting of essays and reflections by Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, and Jewish scholars and theologians, by pastors and professors from the United States, Canada, Ireland, Great Britain, and Israel, is an evaluation of what Nostra Aetate has accomplished thus far and how Christian-Jewish relations must proceed in building bridges of respect, understanding, and trust between the faith groups. A Jubilee for All Times serves as a source of discussion, learning, and dialogue for scholars, students and intelligent laypersons who believe that we must create a positive relationship between Judaism and Christianity.

Seit über drei Jahrzehnten lebt Tuvia Tenenbom in New York. Als er sich 2015 für seine neue Großreportage erstmals auf eine Reise quer durch die USA begab, ahnte er nicht, was ihn erwarten würde: »Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass die Vereinigten Staaten so völlig anders sind, als ich immer angenommen hatte. Lange Jahre war ich überzeugt, dass ich sie ziemlich gut kennen würde. Aber ich bin mir da nicht mehr so sicher. Erst jetzt entdecke ich so nach und nach das wahre Amerika, Stück für Stück, Mensch für Mensch, Staat für Staat.« Tenenbom reiste von Florida bis nach Alaska, von Alabama bis nach Hawaii, vom Deep South und Bible Belt bis an die Großen Seen und die Westküste, sprach mit Politikern und Predigern, mit Evangelikalen, Mormonen und Quäkern, mit Rednecks und Waff ennarren, Kriminellen und Gefängnisinsassen, mit Indianern und Countrymusikern, Antisemiten und Zionisten, mit Obdachlosen und Superreichen und vielen, vielen mehr. Die USA rühmen sich, »das Land der Freien und die Heimat der Tapferen« zu sein. Das wahre Amerika jedoch, so Tenenboms bestürzende Erkenntnis, ist weder frei noch tapfer, sondern ängstlich darauf bedacht, alle Freiheiten einzuschränken. Es ist in sich zutiefst gespalten, rassistisch und hasserfüllt. »Kann sich die Menschheit auf die USA verlassen? Ich würde es nicht tun.«

Diese Themenfelder werden erweitert durch Beiträge zu Fragen der politischen sowie der Rechtsgeschichte, der Kulturrestitution und der Kritik der postmodernen Philosophie. Die wiederkehrenden Rubriken enthalten Beiträge zu Günther Anders, Schmuel Josef Agnon und Lea Goldberg sowie der Sprachenfrage bei Simon Dubnow und der Beteiligung jüdischer Anarchisten an der Bayerischen Räterepublik von 1919.
