The following is a message from Indiana University Press Editorial Director Dee Mortensen
Almost everyone has noticed ever more disturbing reports of violence against Jews and Jewish institutions in the news today. What is at the root of these emotionally charged incidents? How can we combat the harm that is done when deep-seated religious hatreds erupt? In the fight against intolerance, knowledge is our best ally. Reading a book can raise awareness, foster understanding, and usher in newly found respect.
At Indiana University Press, one of the largest U.S. publishers in Jewish and Holocaust studies, we are proud to offer books and journals that energetically fight against hate speech and acts of terror. Our publications not only contain the latest certified research in antisemitism, they also open windows for understanding people, communities, beliefs, and practices. Diatribes against Jews are made up of a familiar set of destructive myths that have been perpetuated over the ages. Given their longevity and tenacity, it is unlikely that these myths can be eradicated, but they can be exposed for what they are. Whether it’s violent antisemitism, European antisemitism, antisemitism and Islamophobia, antisemitism and anti-Zionism, or efforts to demonize and delegitimize Israel, the Press is dedicated to examining the conditions that give rise to antisemitic words and deeds.
You can help promote tolerance and build bridges to understanding by taking advantage of our sale of select books on antisemitism offered at special, deeply discounted prices.
Each of the titles included in this sale will be available for Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook e-readers. If you don't have an e-reader, don't worry! Both the Kindle and Nook apps are available for all smartphone and tablets.
Please read with us and help us battle the growing threat of antisemitism. The following ebook titles will be available for $1.99 each until the end of April.
