A History of Antisemitism in CanadaBook - 2015
"A History of Antisemitism in Canada presents a state-of-the-art account of the phenomenon. It builds on the foundation of numerous previous studies on antisemitism in general and on antisemitism in Canada in particular, and builds on the growing body of scholarship in Canadian Jewish studies. It attempts to understand the ways in which antisemitism has impacted Canada as a whole, and examines most especially its influence on the development of Canada's Jewish community. The book gives readers the tools to understand why antisemitism is such a controversial subject. It acquaints them with the ambiguities inherent in the historical relationship between Jews and Christians and shows these ambiguities in play in the unfolding historical relationship between Jews and Canadians of other religions and ethnicities. It examines present relationships in light of history and, most particularly, considers the influence of antisemitism on the social, religious, and political history of the Canadian Jewish community."--Provided by publisher.
