Denying history : who says the Holocaust never happened and why do they say it? by Michael Shermer( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and Polish and held by 1,893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denying History takes a bold and in-depth look at those who say the Holocaust never happened and explores the motivations behind such claims. While most commentators have dismissed the Holocaust deniers as antisemitic neo-Nazi thugs who do not deserve a response, historians Michael Shermer and Alex Grobman have immersed themselves in the minds and culture of these Holocaust "revisionists." In the process, they show how we can be certain that the Holocaust happened and, for that matter, how we can confirm any historical event. This edition is expanded with a new chapter and epilogue examining current, shockingly mainstream revisionism

The French Enlightenment and the Jews by Arthur Hertzberg( Book )

41 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in English and French and held by 1,349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author's daring thesis, that "modern, secular anti-Semitism was fashioned not as a reaction to the Enlightenment and the Revolution, but within the Enlightenment and Revolution themselves", is developed after a solid analysis of the three groupings of Jews in ancien régime France: the urbane, politically assimilated Sephardic colony of Bordeaux; the less welcome protégés of the Avignon Popes; and the poor, barely tolerated "foreign" Jews of Metz and Alsace, who followed their own laws, wore their own garments, and worshipped the God of the Bible and the Talmud despite Voltaire's disapproval. The author finds that modern anti-Semitism owes less to Christian theological mentality than to doctrinaire libertarianism of such as Voltaire, d'Holbach, Diderot and Marat

The fate of zionism : a secular future for Israel & Palestine by Arthur Hertzberg( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Internationally known historian and rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, challenges us to reexamine the case for the legitimacy of the state of Israel from a secular point of view. He argues that the religious blinders of absolute thinking and hatred have obscured our vision. In this time of great turmoil in the Mideast, when conflict represents a potential nuclear threat to the region and to the world, it is an argument that is more relevant and urgent than ever." "Charting a pragmatic middle path between the Israeli right wing and critics like Edward Said and Noam Chomsky, Hertzberg chronicles the conflict between the original secular vision of Israel and the illusions that came in the subsequent riptide of Israeli triumphalism and the myths of messianism. The deep need of the Israeli people for both power and security has created a paradox, one that can only be solved when the deeper question of legitimacy is addressed in a clear-eyed, secular fashion, away from the growing threat of clashing right wings and religious violence. Hertzberg calls us to go back to the future, to the original idea behind the founding of Israel - that a people persecuted, marginalized, and murdered under state sanction need a safe land, a place to be independent and free." "Between the growing religiously motivated blindness of the right wing (Arab, Jewish, and American Christian), and the one-sided blindness of the Western liberal intelligentsia, it has become difficult to see the future. Hertzberg calls on the United States to use its power and influence to help recover the original Zionist intent and settle the questions of legitimacy and coexistence for both Israelis and Palestinians."--Jacket

Herzl by Steven Beller( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodor Herzl (1860-1904) was the Paris correspondent of the Austrian Neue Freie Presse when he took a momentous decision in June 1895: he would bring about the creation of a state for the Jews. In his attempt to realise this dream, he became the greatest figure of modern Jewish history and is today seen as the father of the State of Israel. The catalyst for Herzl's 'conversion' is usually seen as the Dreyfus affair, which made him realise the impossibility of Jewish existence in Europe. The truth is more complicated and perhaps more dramatic, involving Herzl's background in the context of c
