THE WICKED SON: ANTI-SEMITISM, SELF-HATRED, AND THE JEWS challenges the reader to consider the roots of anti-Semitic belief, opening with a blasting 'The world hates the Jews. The world has always and will continue to do so." And attacking the foundations of the cycle of violence against Jews. These contentions may be difficult to digest for some readers, and for others it may evoke questions about religious commitment and prejudice which are uncomfortable to reflect upon--but that's the glory of THE WICKED SON: it forces such reflection and in so doing, offers up keys to honesty and assessment not to be found elsewhere. A top recommended pick.
