Mr. Weiss shows how anti-Semitism and racism developed as a major element in the European political process from the late nineteenth century to the Holocaust. The reasons for these developments help us understand why the politics of racial hate succeed and what can be done about it. A concise, lucid, clear-headed account.... The strength of John Weiss's acute analysis lies in its ability to show under what historical conditions anti-Semitism could become a trigger for massive 'ethnic cleansing.'... A refreshing and important book, a timely warning that much still needs to be done. -Robert Wistrich, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

A thoughtful survey...a useful overview of the rise-and, it is to be hoped, fall-of European race hatred. * Kirkus *
A succinct yet detailed examination...offers a more nuanced portrait than most.... An important and illuminating contribution. -- Stanislao G. Pugliese, associate professor of modern European history, Hofstra University
Wonderfully insightful.... Written with verve and eminently readable..an inspiration. -- Frederick M. Schweitzer, professor of history and director of the Holocaust Center at Manhattan College
A concise, lucid, clear-headed account . . . acute . . . a refreshing and important book, a timely warning. -- Robert Wistrich, head of the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The book is informed by wide reading. . . . Its ideas are provocative and well argued. * CHOICE *
More than just another holocaust history. . . . A fine survey of how the politics of hate actually evolve. * Midwest Book Review *
