Over a hundred-years, a handful of men and women changed
the way we see the world. Many of them are well known
Marx, Freud, Proust, Einstein, Kafka. Others have vanished from
collective memory despite their enduring importance in our
daily lives. Without Karl Landsteiner there would be no blood

transfusions or major surgery. Without Paul Ehrlich, no che-
motherapy. What do these visionaries have in common? They

all had Jewish origins. They all had a gift for thinking in wholly
original, sometime earth-shattering ways.
Norman Lebrecht has devoted half of his life to pondering and
researching the mindset of the Jewish intellectuals, writers,
scientists, and thinkers who turned the tides of history and
shaped the world as we know it today. In Genius & Anxiety,
he begins with the Communist Manifesto in 1847 and ends
in 1947, when Israel was founded. This robust, magnificent
volume is an urgent and necessary celebration of Jewish genius
and contribution.

NORMAN LEBRECHT is a British historian, cultural commen-
tator, broadcaster and award-winning novelist. His 12 books

about music have been translated into 17 languages. Among
the best-selling titles are The Maestro Myth, Who Killed Classical
Music and Why Mahler? His first novel The Song of Names won
a Whitbred Award and was made into a major feature film.
Lebrecht has lectured at cultural institutions worldwide. He
lives in London, UK.
Dr. RICHARD KURTH, whose Vancouver family roots date to
the 1930s, was the Director of the UBC School of Music. He
currently lives in Australia, where he serves as Director of the
Conservatorium of Music at the University of Melbourne.
