Chapter Summary

Ethnicity in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin America is a popular topic for historians. Academic production on ethnicity, however, has rarely focused on Latin Americans who trace their ancestry to the Middle East, Asia, or Eastern Europe, or those whose ancestors were characterized as Middle Eastern, Asian, or European non-Catholics. Jews are one group that has inspired a notable increase in scholarly Interest. The term 'Latin American Jewry' may be accurate for those who consider themselves first and foremost but the research does not confirm that this is the case for all Jews. Jews, of course, have no monopoly on the Diaspora, and the relationship between national- and immigrant-based ethnic identity is not unique to Jews. The scholarship on Jewish-Latin Americans is a case in point. The literature is almost unanimous in suggesting that anti-Semitism in Latin America is stronger than in other regions of the world.
