New, updated edition of an important and timely critique of Anti-Jewish sentiment on the left.

There is a sickness at the heart of left-wing British politics, and in recent years it has silently spread, becoming ever more malignant.

Today, it seems hard to believe that until the 1980s, the British left was broadly pro-Israel. And while Jeremy Corbyn's leadership may have thrown a harsher spotlight on the crisis, it is by no means a recent phenomenon. The widening gulf between British Jews and the anti-Israel left, now allying itself with Islamist extremists who demand Israel's destruction, did not happen overnight or by chance: political activists made it happen. This book reveals who they were, why they chose Palestine and how they sold their cause to the left.

Based on new academic research, Dave Rich's nuanced and thoughtful guide brings fresh insight to an increasingly fraught debate. As the question becomes more urgent than ever, this new, fully updated edition, taking in events since 2016, provides an essential guide to the left's increasingly controversial Jewish problem.

Review:

Essential reading for anyone seeking to understand modern British politics. --Stephen Pollard, Daily Express

An authoritative history of left antisemitism which is all the more powerful for its moral and intellectual scrupulousness. --Nick Cohen, The Observer

Invaluable. --Dominic Lawson, The Sunday Times

Book Description Biteback Publishing, United Kingdom, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. New, updated edition of an important and timely critique of Anti-Jewish sentiment on the left. A great deal has happened since the first edition of The Left's Jewish Problem came out in 2016. The Shami Chakrabarti Inquiry into anti-Semitism and other forms of racism in the Labour Party has been published; the grip of Labour's hard left has strengthened; has failed to deal with Ken Livingstone and other offenders and attitudes to Jews and anti-Semitism have become a marker of political difference across national politics. However, while Jeremy Corbyn may have thrown a harsher spotlight on the crisis, it is by no means a recent phenomenon.The widening gulf between British Jews and the anti-Israel left - born out of anti-apartheid campaigns and now allying itself with Islamist extremists who demand Israel's destruction - did not happen overnight or by chance: political activists made it happen. This book reveals who they were, why they chose Palestine and how they sold their cause to the left.Based on new academic research into the origins of this phenomenon, combined with the author's daily work observing political extremism, contemporary hostility to Israel, and anti-Semitism, this book brings new insight to the left's increasingly controversial `Jewish problem'.
