Rave Review of “A Convenient Hatred” Featured on Examiner.com
Examiner.com has featured a rave review of Facing History and Ourselves’ A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitism. The New York Journal of Books originally featured the review, written by Charles Weinblatt, in the fall of 2011.
“A Convenient Hatred is a profoundly authoritative resource for educators,” Weinblatt wrote. “Its examples, stories, references, maps, pictures, and illustrations bring the history of the Jews to life in a powerful way not experienced since James Michener’s The Source, a work of fiction."
Authored by Facing History’s senior writer Phyllis Goldstein, A Convenient Hatred traces the history of antisemitism over time and examines how this hatred continues to exist today. The book, released in the fall of 2011, has been featured on Morning Joe as well as in the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, and the New York Post. Most recently, the College and Research Libraries Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, selected the book as one of its “Outstanding Academic Titles of 2012.”
