Description

This state-of-the-art account gives readers the tools to understand why antisemitism is such a controversial subject. It acquaints readers with the ambiguities inherent in the historical relationship between Jews and Christians and shows these ambiguities in play in the unfolding relationship between Jews and Canadians of other religions and ethnicities. It examines present relationships in light of history and considers particularly the influence of antisemitism on the social, religious, and political history of the Canadian Jewish community. 

 

A History of Antisemitism in Canada builds on the foundation of numerous studies on antisemitism in general and on antisemitism in Canada in particular, as well as on the growing body of scholarship in Canadian Jewish studies. It attempts to understand the impact of antisemitism on Canada as a whole and is the first comprehensive account of antisemitism and its effect on the Jewish community of Canada. The book will be valuable to students and scholars not only of Canadian Jewish studies and Canadian ethnic studies but of Canadian history.

Editorial Reviews

“People interested in learning about the history of antisemitism in Canada will find Robinson’s study quite enlightening. The book is well written, massively detailed, and deeply researched in mostly secondary sources."

 

— American Jewish History

Though it is not the first study of antisemitism in Canada, it is the most sweeping book on the topic. While he uses few archival materials, Robinson seems to have consulted every published source of any relevance. The result is a masterful, easily readable, lucid analysis of the phenomenon.

This is a book not only to be read but to be savoured.

 

— AJS Review

A state-of-the-art account of antisemitism in Canada. Attempts to understand the many ways in which antisemitism has impacted Canada as a whole, and examines most especially its influence on the development of Canada’s Jewish community. "...timely and intriguing,"
