A groundbreaking work on the psychodynamics of bigotry and anti-Semitism.
As a child, Dr. Theodore Rubin could not understand why some people hated him and his family only because they were Jews. He soon discovered that other groups were hated, and that bigotry was a dangerous disease that destroys its host as well as its victims. Later in life, Dr. Rubin learned that Anti-Semitism and other deep seated prejudices are non-organic diseases of the mind: malignant emotional illnesses that can be treated only by first understanding the unique psychodynamics involved. Anti-Semitism is a bold endeavor to shed light on one of humankind’s most destructive and contagious illnesses, and offers hope and healing for the future.
