To this book Mr. Katz has brought scholarly rigor, objectivity, and, last but not least, a sense of the passage of time so frequently missing from discussions of anti-Semitism. For once, the modern Jewish experience is not read backward from catastrophe, but is allowed to find its own way through all the continuities and discontinuities which history has to offer… Enables us to discern the history of anti-Semitism with greater clarity than ever before.Commentary

Profoundly disturbing… In a world in which the disease of anti-Semitism appears to be rising, Katz’s work makes compelling reading.Hadassah Magazine

From Prejudice to Destruction contains a wealth of specific information that will be of interest to scholars. The general reader will be drawn to its larger themes. Certainly the most important of these is Katz’s contention that modern anti-Semitism is a direct outgrowth of traditional, Christian anti-Semitism.The New Leader

Over the centuries, he shows, we have been moving toward greater equality. We asked him about his impassioned new book: why he wrote it, how it’s optimistic, and what we need to do to continue making progress on creating an equitable world.
