I feel that this is a very important book. It is one of the clearest and most carefully researched discussions of anti-Semitism I have read. The author is a highly educated and literate man who has had the most terrible first-hand experience of racism. His learning and experience have taught him that the our first duty as human beings is to treat all other human beings with the respect and dignity that we would wish for ourselves; that the response to oppression is not to oppress others in ...more

This is hands down one of the best books I've read on the subject, so I'm disappointed to see it has such a low average rating here.

A pamflet that makes the comparison between the persecution by the nazi's and the contemporary treatment of the Palestines by the Jews. Although Meyer's book is well intended, it lacks structure and feels like a loose collection of different writings in which the author repeats the same ideas over and over. Thus it lacks the convincing power of a well built argumentation.
