Summary, etc.:
"From the dynamic head of Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an impassioned argument about the terrifying path that America finds itself on today--and how we can save ourselves"--Flap page 1 of dust jacket.
It's almost impossible to imagine that unbridled hate and systematic violence could come for us or our families, but it has happened in our lifetimes-- and it could happen here. As CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, Greenblatt has made it his personal mission to demonstrate how antisemitism, racism, and other insidious forms of intolerance can destroy a society. He warns that this they are gathering momentum in the United States-- and violence on an ever larger, more catastrophic scale could be just around the corner. Here Greenblatt offers a bracing primer on how we-- as individuals, as organizations, and as a society-- can strike back against hate. -- adapted from jacket.
