Matthias Kuentzel’s “Jihad and Jew-Hatred”

The 2007 London Book Festival has named Matthias Kuentzel’s Jihad and Jew-Hatred: Islamism, Nazism and the Roots of 9/11 as the grand prize winner of its annual competition honoring books worthy of greater attention from the international publishing community.

Kuentzel’s work, released through New York-based Telos Press Publishing, traces the alleged impact of European fascism on the Arab and Islamic world, drawing parallels between ancient prejudice and modern radicalism. Now translated to English and updated from its German publication in 2002, Kuentzel’s examination of the roots of the current strife between cultures and religions and its impact on world affairs has earned him considerable praise.

Look for the January 6th review in this Sunday’s New York Times.
