Der vorliegende Band rekonstruiert erstmals viele dieser aus verschiedenen politischen Richtungen, gesellschaftlichen Bereichen und akademischen Disziplinen stammenden Erklärungsansätze. Sichtbar wird eine vielgestaltige Forschung, die bislang als Vorgeschichte heutiger Antisemitismustheorien kaum Berücksichtigung fand. Erkenntnisleitend für die Analysen ist die Frage, inwiefern es diesen Beschreibungsversuchen gelang, die herrschenden antisemitischen Vorurteile und Denkweisen zu überwinden und dabei Grundlagen für eine wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung zu formulieren. Zu den Autorinnen und Autoren der hier diskutierten Texte gehören u.a. Saul Ascher, Fritz Bernstein, Nathan Birnbaum, Isaac Breuer, Constantin Brunner, Christian Konrad Wilhelm von Dohm, Norbert Elias, Eduard Fuchs, Emma Goldman, Julius Goldstein, David Kaufmann, Bernard Lazare, Moritz Lazarus, Leo Trotzki, Mark Vishniak und Arnold Zweig.

She is very drawn to how civility manifests in societal associations reminiscent of the kin, the varsity, and the local, and he or she investigates dramatic, filmic, and literary texts by means of African American, Asian American, and Latina/o artists and writers that contest those calls for for a racist civility.

Civil Racism insists that the 1992 “riots” proceed to topic, that the creative responses subject, and that—more than 20 years later—debates approximately problems with race, ethnicity, category, and gender are extra pressing than ever.
