A Brief and Visual History of Antisemitism (2022)
Tekijä: Israel B. Bitton
Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.As an American, I have always been confused by antisemitism. Our world has unfortunately maintained hate, rejecting others often based on appearance. Groups that were hated in the past in America, such as the Irish and Italians, have over time been accepted under the umbrella of whiteness. Others who have difficulty being accepted under this umbrella (typically based on appearing “other”) remain marginalized. Somehow this acceptance appears to not have extended to the Jewish people. This timely book on the history of antisemitism and maintaining factors is an excellent work that should be required reading. This is heavy reading packaged beautifully, and not at all brief as the title implies. But I imagine it would be difficult to explore the full history of antisemitism in anything briefer. Having received ARC PDF version, I appreciate the augmented reality features of this book allowing access to videos and other tools to enhance learning. Worthwhile read. ( )
The textbook is very visual, which makes it attractive to younger readers, and it includes links to interactive videos, which I found educational, but also very interesting. They also served as nice breaks from reading. Although the book is full of vivid photos, I didn't find any of it overwhelming, which one might be concerned about, particularly those sections pertaining to the Holocaust. It was very tastefully done with enough included to serve an impact without being inappropriate for young readers.
Really this textbook is intended more for young Jewish students, my understanding being to equip them with the history they need to understand antisemitism and anti-Zionism and effectively defend themselves against it when they'll no doubt encounter it in today's climate. However, you don't have to fall into that demographic to enjoy and benefit from the content. If you want to learn more about the subject, I'd certainly recommend this book.
From the title I thought that this would be a graphic book and a quick read. It’s not either but it is a great book.
I do see the advantage of an e-copy for this particular book. At the end of each unit there is a recap with a video (I didn’t watch) and a short list of books for further reading and a workbook page for questions and reflections and a long list of keywords. Throughout the book there are various links and augmented reality features. There are frequent ”Scan me” links and videos . I didn’t do these as I read the book since my access to my copy was precarious but I plan to play with some of that content before I take the e-book off of my device.
The book Is not impartial (nor should it be!) and it does express opinions but I’m basically okay with them, especially since they’re backed up with facts. A lot of facts are presented and they have cited sources. I agreed with most of the opinions but the narrative lost me on one page when
This book left me feeling sad, scared, angry, frustrated, but grateful that this issue is being written about and discussed. It’s sobering and horrifying to read about the current situation and the history that precedes it because it was just so much. I guess I knew of all this (in general) but it was still shocking to me.
The Combatting Antisemitism section is excellent and has suggestions that are truly helpful but it’s so short compared to the rest of the book. Trying to tackle this problem is daunting.
I didn’t get a readable copy of the book until May 14.

I’ve contacted the publisher to check to see if these sections were supposed to be included. I would have liked to read them.
I won this e-book from LibraryThing’s Early Reviewers Program: “ADVANCE REVIEW COPY UNEDITED/UNFINISHED FOR PRESENTATION ONLY” in exchange for an honest review. I had problems downloading it and keeping it available for reading so I’ll be careful from now on to enter to win only paper books. Thanks to a lot of work from the publisher and help from Abigail I finally received a readable copy.

"How did the disease of Jew-hatred spread so far and wide? Why has the hateful virus proven so resilient over time? The goal of this highly visual book is thus not merely to inform of what has already transpired, but to empower individuals to make sense of the avalanche of anti-Jewish invective in real-time. As an added feature, Augmented Reality technology allows readers to use their phones (and a free app) to scan highlighted areas and reveal a trove of bonus contents such as archival footage, animations, official documents, and 3D objects that offer immersive perspectives on historical landmarks."--
