Publisher’s Note

Are the Jews a Race? now appears for the first time in English. The first German edition appeared in 1914, under the title Rasse und Judentum; the second edition, in 1921, already included a number of important additions and improvements, particularly the new chapter entitled Zionism After the War; for the present English version, the author has revised and brought up to date the second German edition, in the light of recent developments in Palestine.
