From Facing History and Ourselves, a non-profit organization that helps millions of citizens of all ages confront the lessons of history, comes an approachable, well-researched narrative of the world's oldest consistent hatred and its implications for the moral choices we make. A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitismintroduces this very particular hatred through powerful stories that allow readers to see themselves in the tarnished mirror of history. In doing so, the book raises important questions about the consequences of our assumptions and beliefs and the ways we as individuals and as members of a society make distinctions between "us" and "them," right and wrong, good and evil. Those questions are both universal and particular.
