To understand the twentieth century, we must know the nineteenth. It was then that an ancient prejudice was forged into a modern political weapon. How and why this happened is shown in this classic study by Peter Pulzer, first published in 1964 and now reprinted with a new Introduction by the author.
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.
Should become the standard account of anti-Semitism as a political movement in Central Europe… The value of the book lies both in its completeness and in the clarity of its analyses… [Pulzer] has made a most important, indeed indispensable, contribution to our understanding of modern anti-Semitism.
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.
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.
