Series: Tauber Institute Series for the Study of European Jewry

This innovative collection of essays on the upsurge of antisemitism across Europe in the decades around 1900 shifts the focus away from intellectuals and well-known incidents to less-familiar events, actors and locations, including smaller towns and villages. This “from below” perspective offers a new look at a much-studied phenomenon: essays link provincial violence and antisemitic politics with regional, state and even transnational trends. Featuring a diverse array of geographies that include Great Britain, France, Austria-Hungary, Romania, Italy, Greece and the Russian Empire, the book demonstrates the complex interplay of many factors — economic, religious, political and personal — that led people to attack their Jewish neighbors.
