Birnbaum (politics and philosophy, U. of Paris I-Sorbonne) examines the pogrom without fatalities that swept France in the wake of Emile Zola's denunciation of civil military authorities who convicted Alfred Dreyfus of treason. The modern concept of nationalism was a thin veil for medieval anti-semitism, he says. Moment antisémite was published in 1998 by Librairie Arthéme Fayard and translated by Jane Marie Todd.
