Summary
A collection of essays dealing with stereotypes in language and in literary texts, especially those associating race with sexuality and pathology (organic disease or madness). The introduction (pp. 15-38) gives a psychological explanation of the need to create stereotypes of the Other and give them mythic negative characteristics in order to categorize and control the world. Negative stereotypes of Jews are discussed in ch. 6 (pp. 150-162), "The Madness of the Jews"; ch. 7 (pp. 162-174), "Race and Madness in I.J. Singer's 'The Family Carnovsky'"; ch. 8 (pp. 175-190), "Sigmund Freud and the Jewish Joke."
