A review of the book, Esau's Tears: Modern Antisemitism and the Rise of the Jews by Albert S. Lindemann is presented. Albert Lindemann's ambitious account of modern antisemitism aspires to be a significant revisionist analysis of a phenomenon that runs like a blood-red thread through the tapestry of modern European history. He incisively insists that antisemitism should not be understood in terms of an irreversible development that climaxes in the Nazi destruction of European Jewry, and that contemporary historians must work against the distorting lens of the Shoah in evaluating its history. Instead, he aspires toward a nuanced contextualization of antisemitism within a broad history of the role of Jews and Judaism in modern Europe and America, purporting “to offer a more penetrating and sophisticated analysis of the emergence of antisemitism in modern times”.
