David Hirsh will talk to Dave Rich on Thursday 6 June about his bestseller which has been updated since the October 7 Hamas attacks.

The Hamas terror attack on Israel on October 7 last year sparked a wave of anti-Jewish hatred across the world. Synagogues were burned, Jews attacked and protests raged, with calls for Israel to be erased from the map. It is as if this most ancient of prejudices continues to seduce even the most educated, empathetic and well-meaning members of society. Dr Dave Rich is one of this country’s leading experts on antisemitism, and his latest book, “Everyday Hate: How antisemitism is built into our world and how you can change it”, is a tour de force of the history and present reality of antisemitism, fully updated to address the events of 7 October and all that followed.

Dr Dave Rich is one of the UK’s leading experts on antisemitism. He has worked for almost thirty years for the Community Security Trust, a Jewish charity that protects the UK Jewish community, and has advised the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, football clubs, political parties and many other organisations on how to tackle antisemitism. This is his second book, following The Left’s Jewish Problem: Jeremy Corbyn, Israel and Antisemitism (Biteback, 2016 and 2018). You will regularly find him writing about antisemitism or extremism for national and international media or appearing on TV and radio broadcasts, including for The GuardianNew York TimesNew StatesmanJewish ChronicleHaaretz, BBC News, ITV News, Sky News, Radio 5 Live, LBC, PanoramaNewsnight and others.
