Jews and the German State

Title: Jews and the German State — The Political History of a Minority, 1848-1933
Author: Peter G.J. Pulzer
Publisher: Wayne State University Press; New Ed edition
Language: English
Paperback: 394 pages
ISBN: 978-0814-3313-09

Unlike many historians who see the period between 1848 and 1933 primarily as one of growing anti-Semitism which culminated in the Nazi Party's rise to power and the enactment of its programme of genocide, Peter Pulzer emphasizes the evolution of the ethnic identity, social roles and political activities of German Jews. He documents the emergence of the Jews of Germany from obscurity and marginality into the mainstream of public life over the century prior to the Nazi takeover and demonstrates the importance of Jews in the public life of Germany. In this book, the author argues that Germany history cannot be understood without grasping the role played by the Jewish population of Germany and proposes that the German-Jewish relationship helps to illuminate the complex roles played by minorities in modern societies. It should be of interest to students and scholars of Jewish history in general and German Jewish history in particular.

Die Entstehung des politischen Antisemitismus in Deutschland und Österreich

Title: Die Entstehung des politischen Antisemitismus in Deutschland und Österreich (1867–1914
Author: Peter G.J. Pulzer
Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht
Language: German
Hardcover: 384 pages
ISBN: 978-3-525-36954-8

Der Historiker Peter G. J. Pulzer verfolgt in diesem Klassiker der Antisemitismusforschung die Entstehung und Entwicklung der antisemitischen Bewegungen in Deutschland und Österreich. Bereits zwischen 1867 und 1914 offenbarte sich ihr radikaler Charakter, der sich deutlich von der traditionell begründeten Judenfeindschaft unterschied. Dieser neue "politische Antisemitismus" wurde später zur Grundlage einer — Gewalt und Radikalität vereinigenden — politischen Programmatik, auf die die Nationalsozialisten ab 1933 zurückgreifen konnten.
Pulzers 1966 erschienene Studie war sowohl in der Themenwahl und Dichte der Argumentation als auch im interpretatorischen Zugriff eine Pionierarbeit und prägte einen ganzen Forschungszweig. Die Neuausgabe enthält eine ausführliche Einleitung des Autors zur Rezeption und zum heutigen Stand der Forschung.
