Robert Michael's and Philip Rosen's Dictionary of Antisemitism is one of the most important reference resources of the 21st century. This is a reference work that needs to be in the hands of anyone researching, studying or teaching about discrimination and hate. Knowledge is a crucial weapon in the struggle against intolerance, hate and bigotry and we now have a big gun on our side. The Dictionary of Antisemitism should be in libraries and schools all over the world and translated into as many languages as possible. This work has been a long time in coming and I for one am grateful it is now here.
