"Fascinating, disturbing, groundbreaking and stunningly complete, The Implacable Urge to Defame will remain a unique and brilliant work, to be studied and referenced for years to come."—Archie Rand, professor of art, Brooklyn College, The City University of New York

"This book is an important contribution to early twentieth-century studies, to Judaic Studies programs, and to the large field of literature that addresses the pernicious effects of ethnic stereotyping."—Mona Hadler, professor of art history at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, CUNY

"The book is unique in its subject matter, its attention to detail, its use of supporting literary material, some of it informational, some of it interpretive, and, perhaps above all, for its analytic acumen and insightful interpretation of the cartoons . . . wonderfully readable, informative, [and] enlightening."—Donald Kuspit, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Art History and Philosophy at Stony Brook University
