'This is a very important book, an eye-opening one, and a wise one. I read it in one go - fascinated, educated, appalled, amazed and gripped... It lifts the lid on so many things.' -- A. C. Grayling
'No book could be more timely or with warnings more necessary to heed, if history is not to be repeated.' -- Geoffrey Robertson QC, author of Crimes Against Humanity
