Strange Hate: Antisemitism, Racism and the Limits of Diversity by Keith Kahn-Harris
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 440 KB

How did antisemitism get so strange? How did hate become so clouded in controversy? And what does the strange hate of antisemitism tell us about racism and the politics of diversity today?

Non-Jews celebrate the "good Jews" and reject the "bad Jews". And its not just antisemitism that’s becoming selective, racists and anti-racists alike are starting to choose the minorities they love and hate.
