Justice to the Jew: The Story of What he Has done for the World by Madison C. Peters, published by The Trow Press, New York 1909. At the beginning of the book, a long dedication from Wilhelm Prosburg to a constant present student in the synagogue.

"It is time to stop hating Jews". An important publication on the contribution of Jews to the world in Europe and the United States in all fields of life in the Middle Ages and modern times in order to refute the growing antisemitic claims at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century that Jews lived at the expense of peoples and states. Madison extensively reviews the role of Jews in bringing about the French revolution, provides examples of prominent Jews in the Austrian army, demonstrates the Jewish defense of Polish territory during the Thirty Years' War, proves the role of Jews in the South African War, provides examples of prominent Jews in America's war of independence, shows the Jewish contribution to world astronomical knowledge, Jewish doctors in the service of the Christian church, the great Jewish poets and playwrights, the contribution of Jews to the American economy, the contribution of Jews to culture, and more and more.
Every chapter in the book opens with a statement refuting a common antisemitic claim in a particular field, while the entire chapter provides the full explanation and information about the actual role of Jews in that subject.

XIV, 244 p. Gilt inscription on spine. Very good condition.
