Matthew Bolton & Daniel Randall talk: ‘Confronting Antisemitism’

24th March 2022

Matthew Bolton, co-author of Corbynism: A Critical Approach, discusses Confronting Antisemitism on the Left: Arguments for Socialists with Daniel Randall.

About this event

How has antisemitism historically manifested on the left? Is it an expression of generic antisemitism in wider society, or a distinct form of antisemitism? What are its historical roots, and what is its relationship to antizionism and political discourse about Israel/Palestine? And, crucially, how can it be overcome?

Daniel Randall, author of Confronting Antisemitism on the Left: Arguments for Socialists, will present the themes from his book and discuss these questions, and others, in conversation with Matt Bolton, co-author of Corbynism: A Critical Approach.
