The Paranoid Apocalypse: A Hundred-Year Retrospective on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion

“A timely and important volume that ought to be essential reading for students and scholars alike. The Shoah did not begin with concentration camps and trains. It began with words and ideas. The lies of the Protocols played a key role in marginalizing and dehumanizing European Jewry, paving the way for their brutal extermination. Remarkably, in the contemporary context, the Protocols are once again becoming widely used as effective propaganda, especially throughout much of the Middle East….This text provides an interdisciplinary, high-caliber, scholarly analysis of a subject matter that is under-studied and of profound importance.”—Charles Asher Small, former executive director of the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism
