Essential... concise, elegantly written, and well argued...A superb engagement with Holocaust scholarship. (John David Smith, Choice)
If someone were to read only one book on Nazi Germany's efforts to exterminate European Jewry during World War II, it should be Dan Stone's Histories of the Holocaust. (Mark Brennan, Quarterly Review)
Dan Stone examines critically and insightfully the post-1989 literature in question, together with the schools of thought and areas of debate. The impressive range, quantity and diversity of the material discussed makes Stones book the first interpretive guide to this vast literature. (Florin Lobont, Reviews in History)
Truly superb...the way in which Dan Stone delineates the issues, aided by several previous works in this area, is simply without equal. (Matthew Feldman, Holocaust Studies)
Stone has written an intelligent, wide-ranging and thought-provoking textbook on the Holocaust which will be indispensable reading for scholars and students alike ... a stellar critical synthesis. (Christian Goeschel, European History Quarterly)
highly intelligent and judicious discussion of the most recent trends in Holocaust historiography ... an ambitious project which succeeds (Larry Eugene Jones, English Historical Review)
Histories of the Holocaust demonstrates a magisterial grasp of its subject. It will become required reading on any course dedicated specifically to the history of the Holocaust. (Nicholas Chare, Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory)
