Reviews

"Rubin raises ... deep and disturbing questions about the nature of persecution and mass hysteria, and not least about the ways in which Christian beliefs have caused the deaths of Jews... This is a courageous book, with implications far beyond medieval history."--Michael Clanchy, Times Literary Supplement "What triggers landmark events in history, Rubin explains, is often fictions that people believe, rather than incidents that actually took place... With the flair of the ethnographer, Rubin taps into those perennial transpositions and transferences whereby groups of people are bonded together by invoking an alien other who arouses fear and dismay... A powerful and moving book."--Lisa Jardine, New Statesman
