Strong medicine... An antidote to the moral and intellectual virus
that has spread from the crackpot fringe to the very heart of
public discourse in the media, the courts and the world's
universities. * Los Angeles Times *
Important and impassioned... it illuminates with skill and clarity, not only the peculiarly disturbing world of the Holocaust deniers, but also the methods they have used to distort history, the motives that have driven them to do so, and the vulnerabilities of our educational systems, our culture, and ourselves that have made so many in our society ready to listen to them. * New York Times Book Review *
