The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume 1
Historical Research Department, Nation of Islam, 334 pages, ISBN 0-9636877-0-0 * Copyright 1991 by Latimer Associates * 4th printing 1994 * Perfect Bound
By Caleb Amilicar
Not surprisingly, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews when released after its fourth printing in 1994 established a presence in the scholastic realm, where new ideas are presented, discussed and researched. Compiled by the Historical Research Department, the book has undergone a quiet resurgence on college campuses across the United States. While considered by many to be an underground classic, the book has in fact influenced thought for an entire generation of students, thinkers and theorists.
Consider these words about the book written by Barry Mehler, founder and executive director of the Institute for the Study of Academic Racism:
The book is meticulously, almost lovingly, researched and heavily footnoted. There is no question that the anonymous researchers who produced this book have scoured Jewish literature. As one who reads racist material for a living, this 334 page book appears to be a dazzling addition to the annals of anti-Semitic literature. I am sure that its influence and circulation will be impressive and long lasting.
The TEI agrees that its influence and circulation will be impressive and long lasting, but disagrees with his labeling of it as "anti-Semitic literature" as Mr. Mehler states. It is interesting that while giving praise to the quality of the research, he had apparently classified this book as "racist material" and therefore formed his opinion and judgement of the book based on that position.
On page iv the researchers for the Historical Research Department wrote the following:
A substantial body of evidence that supports the findings herein was excluded by the editors and deemed to be from sources considered anti-Semitic and/or anti-Jewish.
It is evident from that statement that the researchers conducted careful research without the disingenuous and deceptive aim, to create an anti-Semitic or racist publication.
Well packaged, the book contains 334 pages of fully documented text including 1,275 footnotes, from more than 3,000 sources. Most of the sources, if not all, were collected from Jewish historical literature. As a research document, the book is not what you would call an easy read, however, with a fully annotated index, and clearly descriptive sections and subject titles, the book is surprisingly easy to navigate. The editors detailed clearly all references consistently linked by sparse journalistic narratives intended to enhance clarity while not distracting the reader from the information contained within.
