Breaks fresh ground, especially in the section on Austria… [It is] a valuable contribution to the historiography of modern Germany… Full of fascinating facts and figures and information about, for instance, the social composition of the pan-German associations… Indispensable for any serious student of nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe.—Walter Laqueur, The New York Review of Books

Mosse, American Historical Review

A learned and significant examination of modern anti-Semitism… Pulzer has assembled a great quantity of highly interesting and instructive material and has served it up succinctly and in the best academic fashion.—Robert Schwarz, Journal of Politics

The most persuasive case yet presented that the crucial period in the development of the movement that was to perpetrate such horrors after Hitler came to power in Germany was that which stretched from 1867 to 1914.—Gordon A. Craig, American Oxonian
