What's it about? Anti-Semitism has always been present in American culture. How has the Jewish experience changed, especially under a leader like Donald Trump? Weisman delves into the rise of the Alt Right, their roots in older anti-Semitic organizations, the odd ancientness of their grievances and their aims: to spread hate in a palatable way through a political structure that has so suddenly become tolerant of their views. He proposes a unification of American Judaism around the defense of self and of others even more vulnerable: the undocumented immigrants, refugees, Muslim Americans, and black activists who have also been targeted.
