Recently, Jewish voices have begun to warn against a 'new anti-Semitism' fueled by moral concerns about Israel. Opponents have retorted that opposition to 'Zionism' is by no means anti-Semitic. This book, by a non-Jewish analytic philosopher, assesses the relative merits of these opposed views and offers a detailed examination of the moral and intellectual credentials of the widespread current of opinion whose growth underlies both.
