Antisemitism on the Campus: Past and Present, edited by Eunice G. Pollack, is the first entry of a multidisciplinary series on antisemitism in America to be published by Academic Studies Press. In this volume, eighteen leading scholars explore the roots and manifestations of antisemitism and anti-Zionism at American, British, and Canadian colleges and universities over the course of the twentieth century and the responses to such biases. Topics such as the intensification of antisemitism and anti-Zionism on individual campuses, the anti-Israel divestment and boycott movements, discrimination against Jewish faculty, students, and organizations, and students’ exposure to antisemitism and anti-Zionism through popular culture, among others, are covered.
