The Politics of Anti-Semitism
By Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair

Is this the most controversial book of 2003? It was denounced by liberals and neocons alike, numerous reviews in mainstream papers were quashed by editors. Find out what the storm is all about. There’s no more explosive topic in American public life today than the issue of Israel, its treatment of Palestinians and its influence on American politics. Yet the topic is one that is so hedged with anxiety, fury and fear, that honest discussion is often impossible. The Politics of Anti-Semitism lifts this embargo.
