Jews and Blood Libels

In the wake of Prof. Israel Yuval’s new book, a new one by Prof. Ariel Toaff, even before it has been published, is raising some eyebrows. Read about it here and here. Even Yuval seems to disagree with Toaff’s conclusions.

Update: The heat gets turned up, see more here.

Update II: My Obiter Dicta, who knows a thing or two about the question, weighs in on the issue here. Also more here on academic politics and Toaff’s position at Bar-Ilan. From the interviews with Toaff I am not really sure what he does say in the book, so I am going to wait until someone who has actually read it can comment on it.

Update III: It looks like the book, whose first printing already sold out, may undergo some changes.

    What happened to academic freedom? It’s not like this is holocaust denial.
