Taguieff

In the United States one sure way to create controversy is to posit the existence of an "Israel lobby," as Walt and Mearsheimer discovered when they published the book pictured at the left. In France one sure way to create controversy is to posit the existence of an "anti-Israel conspiracy," as Pierre-André Taguieff should have discovered with the publication of his new book, La nouvelle propagande anti-juive. But Jacques Tarnero claims that the press is deliberately ignoring Taguieff's work, thus making controversy out of the absence of controversy. Perhaps Taguieff has simply been hoeing this row too long, since this latest book follows Les prêcheurs de haine and La nouvelle judéophobie.
