'Antisemitism on the Campus: Past & Present', edited by Eunice G. Pollack, is the first book of a multidisciplinary series on Antisemitism in America to be published by Academic Studies Press. In this volume, twenty-one leading scholars explore the roots and manifestations of antisemitism and anti- Zionism and the efforts to combat them at American, British, and South African colleges and universities in the 20th and 21st centuries. Topics such as antisemitism and anti-Zionism on individual campuses, in black militant groups, on the Far Left, and in academic organizations; students' exposure to antisemitism and anti-Zionism through popular culture and the internet; discrimination against Jewish faculty, students and organizations; the anti- Israel boycott/divestment movement, among others, are covered.
