The book includes in its back cover the following sentence by Professor Héctor Schamis, of Georgetown University: "Anti-Semitism is not just a problem of  Jews, it is of society as a whole. In yesterday's format — transparent and brutal — or in today's version — more subtle — it is always a social pathology, a statistical sampling of abuse. Violent to some, very visible, but in reality victimizes everyone. It is a window that shows the difficulties of any society in defining and enforcing rights. When the rights of a minority are violated, they almost always, end up violating those of many others. This book interrogates these issues in historical perspective, from the origins of anti-Semitism to the current formulations, usually involved in the language of 'anti-Zionism' The author takes us by the hand through these topics with knowledge and creativity. A true 'tour de force' on the subject."
