Does the Labour Party have a problem with antisemitism? Jewish supporters are deserting Labour under Jeremy Corbyn and the party has held three different inquiries into antisemitism this year. Dave Rich’s timely new book looks at the growth of an anti-Israel Left, that includes Young Liberals in the 1960s, Trotskyists in the 1980s and parts of the present Labour Party. It looks at the damaged relations between British Jews and the Labour Party, and what can be done to address antisemitism in politics today.
Dave Rich is Deputy Director of Communications at the Community Security Trust. He is also an Associate Research Fellow at the Pears Institute for the Study of Anti-Semitism, Birkbeck College, University of London, where he was awarded his PhD in 2015.
