On Prejudice

Morris Ginsberg


The following essay by the founding editor appeared in the first issue of the Jewish Journal of Sociology. We reprint it here in part as a tribute to Ginsberg’s contribution, and in part because it is an essay that deserves revisiting. While it is very much of its time – 1959, less than a decade and a half after the holocaust, before the success of the American civil rights movement and while commonwealth immigration to the UK was still in process – it remains an exemplary piece of clear yet profound thinking. It also demonstrates how ‘Jewish’ issues can and should be at the heart of an engagement with wider issues in the social sciences.
