This book analyzes the specifics of antisemitism and Jew-hatred in the 21st century. It includes a groundbreaking assessment of the political leanings of many prominent scholars in the field. Today's antisemitism extends far beyond right-wing circles and can be found among liberals, leftists, anti-racist communities, Islamists, and post-colonial scholars in the Western world. Using English and German sources, the author demonstrates the need to oppose Holocaust trivialization as well as other 'modern' forms of antisemitism like anti-Zionism and the defamation of the Jewish state of Israel. Praise for the book: “A thorough, objective and intelligent analysis of the principal form taken by contemporary anti-Semitism.” Dr. Anthony Julius, London “A fascinating research, an important book, an alarming perspective.” Dr. Simon Epstein, Jerusalem “This is an important book, published in a crucial time.” Prof. Dr. Yoav Gelber, Haifa “Clemens Heni's ‘Antisemitism: A Specific Phenomenon’ is a masterful and very sobering analysis of global anti-Semitism.” Prof. Dr. Phyllis Chesler, New York City “Heni fights a battle to restore integrity to academia and the left.” Prof. Dr. Neil Kressel, Wayne (New Jersey) “This is a courageous work on a problem of great contemporary relevance.” Prof. Dr. Steven T. Katz, Boston “This is a must read book.” Prof. Dr. Sam Edelman, Chico (California) “In Clemens Heni’s Anti-Semitism: A Specific Phenomenon we have a rare combination of courage and acumen, much needed in the study of this highly volatile topic.” Prof. Dr. David Patterson, Dallas “Clemens Heni’s timely and important book will help us throw more light on antisemitism – this specific phenomenon, as the author would have it.” Prof. Dr. Leonidas Donskis, Member of European Parliament “Heni's nuanced and informed analysis confirms the ‘treason of the intellectuals’ on both the right and left wing, while revealing the extent to which Islamic fundamentalism is bent on destroying Israel.” Prof. Dr. Alan Berger, Boca Raton (Florida) “Coming to the defense of Jews and Israel has never been an exercise for faint-hearted people.” Prof. Dr. Edward Alexander, Seattle “Heni sensationally unmasks and dethrones a number of today’s icons.” Dr. Dovid Katz, Vilnius (Lithuania) “At a time when anti-Semitism is on the upsurge around the world, and Iran is threatening to destroy the one Jewish state, Clemens Heni provides a vital analysis of the threat.” Dr. Mitchell Bard, Washington, D.C. “This penetrating study systematically exposes the intertwining of anti-Zionism and contemporary antisemitism and Western academia’s papering over the Islamist threat to Jews and the West.” Prof. Dr. Stephen Norwood, Norman (Oklahoma) “Clemen's Heni's book is a very important document for anyone who wants to understand how Jews became the scapegoat of Europe in particular and the declining West in general.” Dr. Mordechai Kedar, Ramat Gan (Israel) “I cannot praise this book too highly.” Prof. Dr. Norman Simms, Hamilton (New Zealand)Über den Autor:
