Review:

Writing press materials including targeted pitch letters, press release, discussion questions, author bio, and important excerpts from the book.

Major print review attention in trade publications, long lead magazines, daily national newspapers, and community newspapers (i.e. weekly Jewish and Christian newspapers in key markets).

""A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitism" will make a valuable contribution to our understanding of this subject." Lawrence L. Langer, "Holocaust Testimonies"

Engaging the reader with narratives, this book provides an easy-to-understand history of an important topic without overwhelming the reader with dry dates and statistics.

This authoritative text equips the reader with the framework necessary to contextualize this long history of hatred.

"This book is a tour de force of one of the most intriguing and disturbing phenomena in history. Tracing the origins and evolution of antisemitism from antiquity to the present day, this book provides a well-informed, highly accessible, and admirably balanced account that should become a basic tool for educators and an essential textbook for students in all fields concerned with the humanities and social sciences."

-Omer Bartov, John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of European History, Brown University

"With no agenda except enlightenment, A Convenient Hatred allows us to finally comprehend the awful history of antisemitism. It deserves the widest possible reading--by young, old, Jew and non-Jew."--Carl Bernstein, journalist and author

"This book delineates with clarity and intelligence the long history of discrimination, insult, and assault against Jews. It makes depressing reading unless you remember what Facing History and Ourselves always remembers: that understanding the past helps us see how we can contribute to making the world better."

-Kwame Anthony Appiah, Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values, Princeton University

"With no agenda except enlightenment, "A Convenient Hatred" allows us to finally comprehend the awful history of antisemitism. It deserves the widest possible reading--by young, old, Jew and non-Jew."--Carl Bernstein, journalist and author

"Facing History has done a characteristically masterful job in exploring antisemitism from ancient times to its current manifestation in a clear and lucid way accessible to students and their parents and to all concerned about the all too enduring quality of what has been termed 'the longest hatred.'"

- Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies, American Jewish University in Los Angeles
