p. 1018. After Auschwitzlocked

  • Steven Beller

Abstract

‘After Auschwitz’ looks at the post-Holocaust world and analyses how antisemitism came to be discredited and exposed as fraud. Nationalism is regarded as the most potent source of the prejudice, intolerance, and hatred of ‘the other’ that is the basis of antisemitism and other racial and group hatreds, but what should succeed it as the dominant form of modern social and political organization? The answer to antisemitism is ultimately not a Jewish state, but the establishment of a truly global system of liberal pluralism. The recent rise in xenophobic nationalism and Islamic fundamentalism in Europe and the Middle East, and increase of antisemitic incidents, suggests this is far from decided.
