Product Description

Product Description

For the first time in 65 years, a modern, easy to understand, truly complete and uncensored edition of Mein Kampf has been released which reveals more than any past translation. This hardcover book is also the first translation available in an English language audio format.

Older translations altered passages, omitted passages, mistranslated Hitler's words, made some parts more sensational while concealing the true meaning in other parts of the book. If you have read one of these older translations of Mein Kampf, then you have not read the REAL Mein Kampf which is found only in the Ford Translation.

Mein Kampf is often portrayed as nothing more than an Anti-Semitic work, however only 6% of it even talks about the Jews. The rest contains Hitler's ideas and beliefs for a greater nation plus his plan on how to accomplish that goal. He outlines his plans for not only world conquest, but the conquest of the universe. The majority of the work involves Hitler's discussion of the German people's difficult times after the First World War, his political theories and his organization of the Nazi Party, as well as many attacks against his enemies which makes it a very interesting and moving story.

Mein Kampf offers an interesting interpretation of politics, people, and foreign policy matters. To characterize it as simply a racist work is to oversimplify its message. Germany did not follow Hitler because he was a racist, they followed him because he promised a great future, and Mein Kampf is where he promised that great future.
This edition is the only accurate and complete English translation of Mein Kampf ever made.

This Ford Translation offers:


* The most accurate translation ever produced.
* Phrases that are translated with precision and with no translator's bias.
* Uncommon words are replaced with more common and more meaningful terms.
* Any references to unfamiliar people, or places are explained in the text.
* This version is complete with all original passages and references restored, including passages omitted from other popular versions.


This translation has corrected over 1000 errors which were present in past translations.

No English reader has been able to appreciate these subtleties in any previous English translation, not until the Ford Translation.

Includes Photos and Illustrations of events and people in Mein Kampf Volume I and II
Click the order button to receive the book so many people wish to disparage and see why they will do anything to have the printing of this book outlawed. They have already tried...

This is the only edition that was so thoroughly researched and verified that it required a separate book(Mein Kampf: A Translation Controversy) to document the changes and corrections made which prove the dynamic style of the Ford translation is superior to all past mechanical translations.

Read the hardback version, then decide for yourself if he was a mad-man or a genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very easy to read, lots of research. 4 July 2012
By EarlR
Format:Kindle Edition
With all the talk about Mein Kampf, the comedy knock off of it in Japan, and the interest in India, I had to see what was so interesting to all of these people. I am glad I did.

I am pretty anal about everything and I don't buy a book without doing my homework. I did a lot of checking and found out there were several translations or versions of Mein Kampf. I even went to my local library and checked out a copy. The only one they had was Manheim's translation. I immediately saw why everyone kept saying it was boring and hard to read, because it was. From my research it sounded like this translation, the Ford translation, was the best and it turns out it was. It was easy to understand and the inserted notes really helped me follow what was being discussed.

Also get the publisher's other book Mein Kampf A Translation Controversy. It has more information on the book(I would suggest getting it used which is cheaper because the last half is just analysis of old translations). It will really change how you see WWI WWII and world events today.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly "People's Edition" of Mein Kampf! 2 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover
Don't believe the negative reviews... If you pass on this edition, you will truly miss out on a fantastic translation of Mein Kampf!

I have read the 1943 Manheim translation, the 1939 Murphy translation, the 1939 Reynal & Hitchcock translation and the 2009 Ford translation. All have their own particular merits, and all appeal to certain audiences. The Manheim appeals to the scholarly and is indeed a faithful, word-for-word translation of Mein Kampf. However, it is incomplete. Further, following it in places can be very confusing in the English language, and many people I know have simply put it down in frustration. It's obviously a scholar's edition, as the German-language footnotes attest.

The Reynal & Hitchcock edition is a better flowing edition than the Manheim, in my opinion, but has been out of print since 1943, when the Manheim was published by Houghton-Mifflin. Why? Because Houghton-Mifflin did not want to pay royalties to Reynal & Hitchcock for their translation, so Ralph Manheim was commissioned for a new translation, which is, in fact, clumsier than the original.

The Murphy edition is far shorter, a fairly easy read for those who speak/read British English and have a decent vocabulary. However, it is paraphrased - as Murphy read a paragraph and put it into his own words. Not Hitler's words, but in most places, true to the meaning. But in some places, he misses the point (as Ford's book about the MEIN KAMPF translation controversy points out). So if you want Hitler, you won't get it from Murphy...

Onto Ford's translation... The thing I like about this translation is that it strikes me as a true PEOPLE's EDITION of Mein Kampf. It is COMPLETE and TRUE to the original, but being a PEOPLE'S EDITION does NOT mean that it is dumbed-down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent edition 29 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an excellent edition of Mein Kampf. I urge you to read the hardback and paperback reviews before deciding. I see some false comments in the reviews of this book which is unfortunate. It is an easy to read and more accurate edition than the Manheim or Murphy editions. Ford has documented this translation in a book called Mein Kampf A Translation Controversy and it clearly shows how much work went into this new translation. It also shows how much it is different from those and how many errors existed in those older versions. I must complement Mr Ford on this edition's quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars a prophetic book 6 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What's amazing about Mein Kampf is it is all, and I mean all, about the Jews. There is no talk about killing disabled people, creating a master race or world conquest. Zilch! It is all a war on Jews! No wonder the Jews can't stand the man.

It is all revolving around the Jews.

If you look at Europe today, and America, all the policies are the opposite of what is in Mein Kampf. Even England, during the war, was a 'monolithic' racial country, to quote Barbara Lerner Spectre, but is now racially mixed. Indeed, London is today an Asian/African city whilst Berlin is still German! Karma, anybody? Or do the Jews have a great sense of humour?

Any intelligent individual today, so intelligent individuals tell me, who reads Mein Kampf will see a pattern emerging, like looking up on a thunderous day so see the clouds emerge as a hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars An accomplished work 17 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a new translation of Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf. I love history and when I saw this book I realized I had not read it and it is of such historical importance...how could I not read it. Since buying this edition I have learned more about the book's history and now realize I got lucky by picking this Ford translation. This edition has notes that are not in other versions which explain historical references and many things Hitler said which may not be clear to the modern reader. It also has a link to a book called Mein Kampf A Translation Controversy which documents how this book was written and researched. It shows many of the errors that existed in past books and what they should have said as well as showing which passages were omitted from past printings of Mein Kampf. This edition has restored all of the omitted parts and corrected all of the mistakes of past editions plus has all of the historical notes. I found it a fascinating read and a unique look into the mind of a dictator. It has some anti-semitism in it, that is to be expected, but it is not the bigoted work I thought it would be. It spends a lot of time on the troubles of Germany at the time and Hitler's theories. The notes in the text inserted in this edition also really helped connect me with the meaning in terms of history because many of Hitler's references were to events that are almost forgotten today.

If you have any doubts about the quality of this book, read the Mein Kampf A Translation Controversy book first, it is free from the publisher and also available here on amazon. It really establishes the credibility of this edition and shows how much work went into this edition which I found flooring.
