The Myth of the Jewish Menace In World Affairs: Or the Truth About the Forged Protocols of the Elders of Zion
In 1920, with concerns about the increase in Jewish political influence growing, Anglo-Jewish journalist and writer Lucien Wolf published a series of three articles in the British press arguing against the myth of the Jewish menace in world affairs as it was being portrayed in newspapers such as The Morning Post or by intellectuals like G. K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc. Wolf also took great pains to debunk the infamous Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, which had been published for the first time in English that year, and accusations that Jews were behind the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia three years earlier. The three articles were revised and updated by Wolf and published in book form in 1921. In this new edition, Simon Harris places the text in its historical context and discusses the points raised by Wolf. As the publication of the English translation of the Protocols approaches its centenary, the underlying themes of Wolf's essays are as relevant today as they were a century ago.
