    Aims and Scope

    The Handbook of Anti-Semitism compiles the present state of knowledge on the phenomenon of Judaeophobia without limits of time or space. Anti-Semitism is the oldest form of religious, cultural, social and political prejudice, and here it is presented and interpreted in all its manifestations – as an attitude, as a political model, as an instrumentalisation of emotions, as aggression ranging from pogroms to genocide.
