Since unification, Germany has experienced profound changes, including the reawakening of xenophobic hate crime, antisemitic incidents, and racist violence. This book presents the most recent research conducted by a team of American and German experts in political science, sociology, masscommunication, and history. They analyze the degrees of antisemitism, xenophobia, remembrance, and Holocaust knowledge in German public opinion; the groups and organizations that propagate such prejudice and hate; and the German, American, and Jewish perceptions of, and reactions to, thesephenomena.
Hermann Kurthen is at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Rainer Erb is at University of Potsdam.

Editorial Reviews

"Antisemitism and Xenphobia in Germany After Unification is a valuable addition to the literature and can be recommended to scholars with a general interest in German politics after unification, as well as an accessible introductory text for graduate as well as undergraduate courses.Particularly for those not familiar with the vast German-language literature on the extreme right, it brings together a broad range of research results and offers a treasure of factual information."--American Journal of Sociology
