The uses and abuses of antisemitism in the 21st Century, collected by Jewish Voice for Peace.

With a foreword by Judith Butler.


"On Antisemitism... couldn't have come out at a better time... [The book] provides helpful context for this confusing political moment by showing how right-wing apologists for Israel have systematically redefined antisemitism to include anti-Zionism to silence and intimidate advocates for justice in Palestine." -- Truthout

"A must-read for all involved in the struggle to build solidarity with the Palestinians today." -- Socialist Review

"On Anti-Semitism is a powerful and necessary book and its impressive range of contributors - Jewish and Palestinian - give voice to a variety of viewpoints." -- Prisma
