The author was chief historical adviser to the defence of David Irving’s libel suit against Penguin Books and the author Deborah Lipstadt who had described Irving as “one of the most dangerous Holocaust deniers at work today.”
In this book Richard J. Evans, Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University, uses the trial as a lens for exploring a range of vital questions about who was responsible for violence and genocide against the Jews in Nazi Germany. In the process of denouncing Irving, Evans sheds light not only on history, but on the methods of historians and the nature of the historical enterprise. A classical example of historical research as detective story. Paperback, pp xiv, 318.
