Why are there new books on left Antisemitism?

Arts & Culture

Robert Fine & Philip Spencer, David Hirsh and Dave Rich talk about their books and hear Lesley Klaff respond with Sasha Roseneil in the chair.

Fine and Spencer's book 'Antisemitism and the Left' worries about and describes the return of the 'Jewish Question'. They show how the so-called 'Jewish Question' is never really about Jews but is always really about antisemites; rather they are interested in the antisemitism question.

David Hirsh's book 'Contemporary Left Antisemitism' begins with the Livingstone Formulation, describing how Jews who experience antisemitism are treated with more suspicion than are the people who actually stumble into antisemitism itself.  

Dave Rich's book, 'The Left's Jewish Problem' traces Jeremy Corbyn's issues with Israel and antisemitism back to their roots.

Lesley Klaff is Senior Lecturer in Law at Sheffield Hallam University. 

Professor Sasha Roseneil is Executive Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Essex. Previously she was Professor of Sociology and Social Theory and Director of the Birkbeck Institute for Social Research at Birkbeck, University of London for nine years. Where she served as Assistant Dean for Research in the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy and Head of the Department for Psychosocial Studies.
