The Devil and the Jews: The Medieval Conception of the Jew and Its Relation to Modern Anti-Semitism - Trachtenberg, Joshua, and Saperstein, Marc, Rabbi, PhD (Foreword by)

Focuses on the medieval conception of the Jew as devil - literally and figuratively. Through documents, analysis, and illustrations, this book exposes the full spectrum of the Jew's demonization as devil, sorcerer, and ritual murderer. It also reveals how these myths still exist in transmuted form in the modern era.
