Summary
Ch. 2 (pp. 25-48), "Black (E)Masculinity and Anti-Semitism", discusses Black stereotypes of Jews, who were largely identified with Whites, as oppressors. States that antisemitism is linked to Black self-hatred. Notes that stereotypes of Jews in Black literature were less acceptable than those of Blacks in Jewish literature. Ch. 5 (pp. 91-110), "Burning Bridges: Black Nationalism and Anti-Semitism", shows how, in the late 1960s, questioning of liberal assumptions about U.S. society led to Black nationalists' viewing Jews as paternalistic, self-interested, and largely responsible for oppression of Blacks. Black nationalist literature, e.g. that of LeRoi Jones (Imamu Amiri Baraka), was rife with antisemitic stereotypes. After the 1960s a hybrid African-American literature developed, more differentiated in regard to Jews. Ch. 6 (pp. 111-141), "Jewish Backlash", presents Saul Bellow's "Mr. Sammler's Planet" (1970) and Bernard Malamud's "The Tenants" (1971) as Jewish reactions to threats raised by the Black Arts Movement and Black nationalists.
