About the Author

Peter Longerich is Professor of Modern German History and Director of the Research Centre for the Holocaust and Twentieth-Century History at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has published widely on the subject, in English and German, including The Unwritten Order: Hitler's Role in the Final Solution, and The Systematic Character of the National Socialist Policy for the Extermination of the Jews. The latter formed part of his Expert Opinion in the notorious David Irving v. Penguin/Lipstadt trial. His latest book is a biography of SS leader Heinrich Himmler, which is also to be published by Oxford University Press.


`Review from previous edition Skeptics who maintain there is little of value left to learn about the Holocaust should read this superb and provocative work...A vital addition to the field of Holocaust studies.' Booklist `Peter Longerich's book has long been recognised as invaluable in understanding how Nazi persecution of Jews escalated into the politics of total genocide. It is splendid that this important book will now be accessible in an English edition. ' Ian Kershaw `A landmark in Holocaust hisory.' William Chislett, El Imparacial Madrid
