Issues related to deception and self-deception and issues related to attributional biases in favor of self, relatives, and ingroup should certainly not surprise an evolutionist. That some gentiles were involved in these movements is not surprising either. While treating his subjects respectfully, attributing to Ashkenazic Jews a mean I. Toward an Evolutionary Theory of Anti-Semitism. The discussion there is certainly incomplete without adding the details of MacDonald's study.
Even Jewish leftist radicalism was probably a minority movement within Jewish communities in the United States and other Western societies for most periods. This review is a good example of the reception my books have received from pro-European ethnic activists. Some readers, their view of history possibly turned upside down, may be pinching themselves. In attempting to gauge Jewish influence in various areas, it is easy to suppose that I am viewing Judaism in a monolithic manner. The voluntary model of strategy is persistent, but it is neither mandatory nor necessarily complete.
Sans quantitative data, MacDonald earnestly tries to test hypotheses by presenting quotes from texts both old and new and from mostly European experiences. Unfortunately, in this as with so many critical issues, there are powerful forces on all sides that see political and social advantages in blame and name-calling. This is an academic book, but accessible enough for readers of, say, The Economist or The Atlantic.
MacDonald's tone is equally calm and descriptive throughout. This definitely not the case. This book is the third and final volume developing an evolutionary perspective on Judaism. From his teenage years he disliked the Germans and in later life criticized Jewish colleagues for converting to Christianity and acting like Prussians. See Benda's famous The Treason of the Intellectuals, where he tells of the flaming anti-bourgeois thinking of the nineteenth century in Europe.
