Hitler and the Holocaust by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

57 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Wistrich begins his history of the Holocaust by exploring the origins of anti-Semitism in Europe, and especially in Germany, to try explain how millions of Jews came to be killed systematically by the Third Reich. In the process of relating these events, he provides new and incisive answers to a number of central questions concerning the Shoah that have emerged over recent years: who, inside and outside Nazi Germany, knew that Jews were being murdered; how responsibility for the genocide should be divided between Hitler himself and ordinary Germans; and how historians have tried to make sense of the Holocaust. The book concludes by considering the legacy of Nazi crimes since 1945: the Nuremburg trials, the impact of the Holocaust on Diaspora Jewry (particularly in Israel and America), and the rise of neo-Nazism and Holocaust-denial

Nietzsche, godfather of fascism? : on the uses and abuses of a philosophy by Jacob Golomb( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Nietzsche, the Godfather of Fascism? What can Nietzsche have in common with this murderous ideology? Frequently described as the "radical aristocrat" of the spirit, Nietzsche abhorred mass culture and strove to cultivate an U;bermensch endowed with exceptional mental qualities. What can such a thinker have in common with the fascistic manipulation of the masses for chauvinistic goals that crushed the autonomy of the individual? The question that lies at the heart of this collection is how Nietzsche came to acquire the deadly "honor" of being considered the philosopher of the Third Reich and whether such claims had any justification. Does it make any sense to hold him in some way responsible for the horrors of Auschwitz? The editors present a range of views that attempt to do justice to the ambiguity and richness of Nietzsche's thought. First-rate contributions by a variety of distinguished philosophers and historians explore in depth Nietzsche's attitudes toward Jews, Judaism, Christianity, anti-Semitism, and National Socialism. They interrogate Nietzsche's writings for fascist and anti-Semitic proclivities and consider how they were read by fascists who claimed Nietzsche as their intellectual godfather. There is much that is disturbingly antiegalitarian and antidemocratic in Nietzsche, and his writings on Jews are open to differing interpretations. Yet his emphasis on individualism and contempt for German nationalism and anti-Semitism put him at stark odds with Nazi ideology. The Nietzsche that emerges here is a tragic prophet of the spiritual vacuum that produced the twentieth century's totalitarian movements, the thinker who best diagnosed the pathologies of fin-de-siècle European culture. Nietzsche dared to look into the abyss of modern nihilism. This book tells us what he found. The contributors are Menahem Brinker, Daniel W. Conway, Stanley Corngold, Kurt Rudolf Fischer, Jacob Golomb, Robert C. Holub, Berel Lang, Wolfgang Müller-Lauter, Alexander Nehamas, David Ohana, Roderick Stackelberg, Mario Sznajder, Geoffrey Waite, Robert S. Wistrich, and Yirmiyahu Yovel

Laboratory for world destruction : Germans and Jews in Central Europe by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert S. Wistrich's Laboratory for World Destruction is a study of the fateful symbiosis between Germans and Jews in Central Europe, which culminated in the tragic denouement of the Holocaust. Wistrich shows that the seeds of catastrophe were already sown in the Hapsburg Empire, which would become, in Karl Kraus's words, "an experimental station in the destruction of the world." Featured are chapters on Freud, Herzl, Lueger, Kraus, Nordau, Nietzsche, and Hitler, along with a panorama of the golden age of Central European Jewry before the lights went out in Europe."--Jacket
Demonizing the other : antisemitism, racism & xenophobia by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the close of the twentieth century the stereotyping and demonization of 'others', whether on religious, nationalist, racist, or political grounds, has become a burning issue. Yet comparatively little attention has been paid to how and why we fabricate images of the 'other' as an enemy or 'demon' to be destroyed. This innovative book fills that gap through an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural approach that brings together a distinguished array of historians, anthropologists, psychologists, literary critics, and feminists. The historical sweep covers Greco-Roman Antiquity, the MIddle Ages
Terms of survival : the Jewish world since 1945 by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of the Jewish State of Israel has fundamentally changed the conditions of Jewish existence. Yet the immense changes that have taken place since 1945 have rarely been comprehensively analysed. Terms of Survival sets out to fill this need, and to take stock of the Jewish world as it has emerged from the catastrophe of the Holocaust. From a wide-ranging perspective, the book considers the demographic, occupational and behavioural transformations in Jewry. Contributors examine the new Jewish politics in Israel, the USA, Europe and the ex-USSR, changing religious patterns among Jews and new perceptions of them. Also considered are the ways in which some of the problems confronting contemporary Jews have found expression in literature. The book reflects the way in which post-war Jewry has become both more self-assertive in the defence of its interests, and more uncertain in the light of continuing anti-semitism

From ambivalence to betrayal : the left, the Jews, and Israel by Robert S Wistrich( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Ambivalence to Betrayal is the first study to explore the transformation in attitudes on the Left toward the Jews, Zionism, and Israel since the origins of European socialism in the 1840s until the present. This pathbreaking synthesis reveals a striking continuity in negative stereotypes of Jews, contempt for Judaism, and negation of Jewish national self-determination from the days of Karl Marx to the current left-wing intellectual assault on Israel. World-renowned expert on the history of antisemitism Robert S. Wistrich provides not only a powerful analysis of how and why the Left emerged as a spearhead of anti-Israel sentiment but also new insights into the wider involvement of Jews in radical movements. There are fascinating portraits of Marx, Moses Hess, Bernard Lazare, Rosa Luxemburg, Leon Trotsky, and other Jewish intellectuals, alongside analyses of the darker face of socialist and Communist antisemitism. The closing section eloquently exposes the degeneration of leftist anti-Zionist critiques into a novel form of "anti-racist" racism
Holocaust denial : the politics of perfidy by Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism (Universiṭah ha-ʻIvrit bi-Yerushal( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holocaust Denial: The Politics of Perfidy provides a graphic and compelling global panorama of past and present variations on this toxic phenomenon. The volume examines right and left wing French negationism, post-Communist Holocaust deniers in Eastern-Europe, the spread of denial to Australia, Canada, South-Africa and even to Japan. Leading scholarly experts also explore the close connection between Holocaust denial, global conspiracy theories, antisemitism and radical anti-Zionism, especially in Iran and the Arab world
