Overview

Racism in Europe: 1870-2000 / Edition 1

The study of modern racism has tended to treat anti-Semitism and anti-black racism as separate and unconnected phenomena. This innovative study argues that a full understanding of the origins and development of racism in Europe after 1870 needs to examine the structure and interrelationships between the two dominant forms of prejudice. The "crisis of modernity" found expression in a deepening political racism, which was formulated, according to national contexts, through negative stereotypes of the black and the Jew which were structured in quite different ways. By weaving together the changing spatial and temporal dimensions of anti-Semitic and anti-black prejudice Neil MacMaster provides a fresh and more global framework for understanding modern racism.
