Explores local incidents of antisemitism and antisemitic violence across Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries

This innovative collection of essays on the upsurge of antisemitism across Europe in the decades around 1900 shifts the focus away from intellectuals and well-known incidents to less-familiar events, actors, and locations, including smaller towns and villages. This “from below” perspective offers a new look at a much-studied phenomenon: essays link provincial violence and antisemitic politics with regional, state, and even transnational trends. Featuring a diverse array of geographies that include Great Britain, France, Austria-Hungary, Romania, Italy, Greece, and the Russian Empire, the book demonstrates the complex interplay of many factors—economic, religious, political, and personal—that led people to attack their Jewish neighbors.

Reviews / Endorsements

“[The] work shows that we must distinguish more carefully between, on the one hand, the triggers and varying “functions” of antisemitism and, on the other, their transmission and reception, facilitated by unconscious and unchanging preconditions and presuppositions. To neglect these latter because they seem to be familiar in order to concentrate on the superficial novelties of the former because they are “new” is to adhere too faithfully to the self-definitions and “rules” of the antisemites themselves. It does not occur often enough to our excellent authors that it was in the interest of antisemitic leaders to feature and lionize the immediate “new” issues while hiding the long-standing ones.”
