RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 42049292 LA English T1 A rumor about the Jews : reflections on antisemitism and the Protocols of the learned elders of Zion A1 Bronner, Stephen Eric,, PB St. Martin's Press PP New York YR 2000 SN 0312218044 9780312218041 AB "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is among the most infamous documents of antisemitism. A forgery created in Russia by the czarist secret police and quickly translated into a host of languages, it portrayed Judaism as a worldwide conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of Christian civilization. The appearance of the Protocols sparked a number of bloody pogroms and helped shape the thinking of right-wing movements worldwide, from Hitler's Nazis to contemporary antisemitic groups in Russia, the Middle East, and the United States. A work of intellectual history, A Rumor about the Jews expresses the connection between antisemitism and the overarching political assault upon the enlightenment legacy and provides a new and penetrating understanding of an insidious ideology and its broader implications."--Jacket.
