This paper details the history of the phrase "Anti-Semitism" what it means and what it refers to. It outlines the persecution and demonization of Jews throughout history and the justification of declaring an act or a statement as anti-Semitic.

From the Paper:

"Is anti-Semitism prejudice? The term could refer to a host of debilitating assumptions about Jews that have lasted since the beginning of the modern age. Although the term anti-Semitism was only coined in 1879, anti-Jewish agitation has existed for several thousand years. In the ancient Roman Empire, for example, the devotion of Jews to their religion and special forms of worship was used as a pretext for political discrimination against them, and very few Jews were admitted to Roman citizenship."
