For figures ranging from Karl Marx to the luminaries of the Frankfurt School, the 'Jewish Question' ― a set of problems related to emancipation and anti-Semitism, cultural assimilation and Zionism ― raised significant controversies within Marxist theory. Renowned scholar Enzo Traverso carefully reconstructs this intellectual debate that runs over more than a century, discussing both its generative aspects and its blind alleys. In The Jewish Question: History of a Marxist Debate, Traverso explores the causes and the forms of the encounter that took place, from the middle of the nineteenth century to the Holocaust, between the intelligentsia of a cosmopolitan minority and the most radical ideological current of Western modernity.
