Patrick Groff answers:
Hello, I am one of the volunteers who answers questions put forth to the Holocaust -History.org questions list. I would suggest looking for the following books.
The second book maybe harder to find then the first, so an Intra-Library loan may have to be requested, but you should be able to find both. Additionally I would look at the separate histories of the major figures of German-Austrian politics and those figures prior to the Nazi party. Good luck in your search

I'm afraid that the Internet is not going to provide you with very much information on 19th century anti-Semitism in Germany. I have found a few sites that might be useful to you:
provides abstracts of many excellent publications.
lists anti-Semitic incidents from the beginning of history including the period you are researching.
includes a brief chronology including the period you are researching, listing a number of contemporary publications.
includes Herzl's diaries from 1895 to 1904
lists the articles published in the journal _Jewish Social Studies many of which include the period you are researching.
includes a brief biography (in German) of Wilhelm Marr
In the end you will probably have to visit your university library to find information that will allow you to write a good research paper. Some of the books which I selected from my own library include:
Wilhelm Marr: The Patriarch of Antisemitism
Jewish Activism in Imperial Germany
From Prejudice to Destruction: Antisemitism 1700-1933
Jewish Responses to Anti-Semitism in Germany, 1870-1914
The Jews and Germany
The German-Jewish Dilema: From the Enlightenment to the Shoah
I hope that this information will be of some use to you.
