Paths to Genocide: Antisemitism in Western History (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Paths to Genocide examines the development of antisemitism from the beginnings of Christianity, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, Enlightenment and nineteenth century liberalism, nationalism and racism to the Holocaust. Focusing on major periods, places and problems in the history of European civilization, the book highlights historical contexts as it shows how religion, science, and socioeconomic forces all played a role in the evolution of antisemitism to its genocidal climax.

LIONEL B. STEIMAN is Professor of History at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada, where he has taught for over twenty-five years and served as Associate Head and Graduate Chair of his department. His interest in antisemitism derives from a Lutheran upbringing in Winnipeg's polyglot Jewish north-end. He has taught courses in European history and special courses on the history of war, fascism and antisemitism. In addition to numerous articles on Stefan Zweig and Franz Werfel exploring themes of identity and exile, he is the author of Franz Werfel: the Faith of an exile, from Prague to Beverly Hills, which examines the paradox of a writer of Jewish origin who became a propagandist for Roman Catholicism.
