The Anti-Journalist
University of Chicago Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the anti-journalism developed by Karl Kraus in turn-of-the-century Vienna. It argues that in the most infamous “symptom” of his Jewish self-hatred, “Heine and the Consequences,” Kraus operates with anti-Jewish discourse mostly for strategic purposes while offering a seminal formulation of his boldest stylistic principles. This volume is about the meanings German-Jewish journalism took on at a moment when both German Jews and journalism were together deeply implicated in the “crisis of modernity.”

Keywords:   anti-journalism, Karl Kraus, Vienna, Jewish self-hatred, Heine and the Consequences, anti-Jewish discourse, German-Jewish journalism, German Jews, modernity
