At the close of the twentieth century the stereotyping and demonization of others, whether on religious, nationalist, racist or political grounds, has become a burning issue. Yet comparatively little attention has been paid to how and why we fabricate images of the other as an enemy or demon to be destroyed. This innovative book fills that gap through an inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural approach that brings together a distinguished array of historians, anthropologists, psychoanalysts, literary critics, and feminists.The historical sweep covers Greco-Roman Antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Modern Era.

Antisemitism receives special attention because of its longevity and centrality to the Holocaust, but it is analyzed here within the much broader framework of racism and xenophobia. The plurality of viewpoints expressed in this volume provide some fascinating insights into what is common and what is unique to the many varieties of prejudice, stereotyping, demonization, and hatred.
