At last. . .an answer to the ancient--and ever-
contemporary--scourge of anti-Semitism, once
again explosively enveloping humanity worldwide.

MONSTERS AND MADONNAS exposes the dialectic
between the unconscious mind and the “hidden” drama
of the Christ story—to reveal, for the first time, a credible
basis for “Jewish guilt” and Jewish self-loathing, and a
startling answer to a phenomenon that has plagued
humankind for almost two thousand years.

"A brilliant and provocative explanation of what was previously inexplicable the pervasiveness and intractability of anti-Semitism. . . .It is a must read for all Christians, for all Jews, and for people of good will who would try to root out the sin and the crime of anti-Semitism."
Alan M. Dershowitz

"What makes this book so remarkable is not just its combination of genuine scholarship and literary talent, but its highly original approach to a problem of blazing concern."
Norman Cousins

"Monsters and Madonnas. . .is controversial, psychological, original €”and terrifying."€ť
Joseph Wershba , former senior producer, CBS 60 Minutes

Human beings are still trying to reclaim the night from the terrors and demons. This book is a unique contribution to scholarship, and to our literature."
karen DeCrow, former national president, National Organization for Women

€śEvery effort to probe the unconscious roots of anti-Semitism must be given full consideration. Monsters And Madonnas is deserving of serious thought.
Rev. Edward H. Flannery, former director, Office of Catholic-Jewish Relations
