"Well written and well documented, Prof. Marcus' new book on the definition of antisemitism is a timely publication: the recent rise of antisemitism worldwide has drawn attention to the crucial issue of defining it properly. Based on a vast variety of historic examples on the one hand, and referring to the present context on the other, Pro.Marcus offers insights and solutions that should be carefully listened to."-Prof. Dina Porat, Chief Historian of Yad Vashem, Head of the Kantor Center, Tel Aviv University "This book offers a smart guide to understanding what is at stake in efforts to define anti-Semitism today, and sheds light on the crucial question of the relation between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism." -Maurice Samuels, Betty Jane Anlyan Professor of French, Yale University and Director of the Yale Program for the Study of Antisemitism "Kenneth Marcus untangles an exceptionally gnarled subject and provides the solid, clear, and substantial groundwork for any future analysis or debate." -Ruth R. Wisse, Professor Emerita, Harvard University and author of Jews and Power "With great insight, Ken Marcus has written an eloquent and thorough study of the difficulties encountered in defining an anti-Semitism that is constantly transforming its modes of action and its role in social protests. The book explains the major impediments encountered in trying to deploy the law to combat a Jew-hatred that takes refuge in the moral high ground of exercising the right of free speech or behind the fire-wall of the academy. Noting that anti-Semitic rhetoric is gaining traction in mainstream publications as the memory of the Holocaust fades, Marcus has generated a narrative that is as moving as it is important." -Donna Robinson Divine, Morningstar Family Professor of Jewish Studies and Professor of Government, Emerita, Smith College "The Definition of Anti-Semitism provides a crystalline analysis of a subject which provokes widespread disagreement. Erudite and combative, obdurate yet subtle, the book's arguments will delight some readers and they will vex others. Beyond doubt, however, anyone who seeks to understand antisemitism will now need to reckon with Kenneth Marcus's account." -David Feldman, Director, Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism School of Social Science, History and Philosophy Birkbeck, University of London
