Rejects the widespread opinion that antisemitism is a Western phenomenon contingent on some particular aspects of Christianity. Antisemitism has existed in all the times and places where Jews have lived, with common themes throughout. Contends that the main idea of Judaism is cultural and genetic separatism, and that this tendency provokes antisemitic reactions; the latter may be reinforced by Jewish-Gentile competition for social resources. Examines the emergence of antisemitic reactions in the Roman Empire, in medieval Europe (mainly Spain), and in Germany from the late 18th century to the Nazi period. Analyzes typical Jewish reactions to antisemitism. Supports his viewpoint with citations from contemporary Jewish authors."@en ;
