As some readers may be aware, a hoax e-mail has been circulating widely on the internet that falsely claims Amazon has favorably reviewed this book. This allegation is, of course, absolutely untrue. Nevertheless, this rumor has become so widespread on the Internet that it's already a recognized "urban legend," just like alligators living in the sewers. Amazon.co.uk obviously does not endorse The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. This book is one of the most infamous, and tragically influential, examples of racist propaganda ever written. It may be useful to some as a tool in the teaching of the history of anti-Semitism, but it's unquestionably propaganda.
Does Amazon.co.uk sell this book? Of course we do, along with millions of other titles. You can also find books in Amazon.co.uk's online bookstore that analyze The Protocols' fraudulent origins and its tragic historical role in promoting anti-Semitism and Jewish persecution, including A Lie and a Libel: History of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Should Amazon.co.uk sell The Protocols and other controversial works? As a bookseller, Amazon.co.uk strongly believes that people have the right to choose their own reading material. Our goal is to support freedom of expression and to provide customers with the broadest selection possible so they can find, discover, and buy any title they might be seeking. That selection includes some titles which many people, including many employees of Amazon.co.uk, may find distasteful or otherwise objectionable. However, Amazon.co.uk believes it is censorship to make a book unavailable to our customers because we believe its message to be repugnant.
Furthermore, because we strongly believe that the appropriate response to repugnant speech is not censorship, but more speech, we will continue to allow readers, authors, and publishers to express their views about the books and other products we offer on our Web site.
We hope we have eliminated any confusion surrounding this book. If you happened to be one of the many who received the infamous e-mail, we would appreciate it if you would pass this along to your friends. It is very hurtful to everyone at Amazon to be accused of racism.
Thank you for your consideration.

Although it's a pernicious fraud, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion has unfortunately had a widespread influence--all of it evil--on the history of the 20th century. It was exposed as a hoax in 1921, yet it has been used as a justification for the Holocaust and for innumerable pogroms in Russia and the Soviet Union.
The Protocols was supposedly written in 1897 from the minutes of 24 secret meetings between Jews and Freemasons in which they conspired to bring down Western civilization and jointly rule the world. In reality, it is nothing of the sort. In 1921, Philip Graves of the London Times revealed The Protocols to be a fraud, showing it to be based on a French satire aimed at Napoleon III. In a series of side-by-side extracts printed in the Times, Graves demonstrated that the forgers took long portions of the original text, titled Dialogues in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu, and simply replaced "France" with "Zion" and "The Emperor" with "We the Jews." Further investigations by the Russian historian Vladimir Burtsev revealed other sources for The Protocols, including a fantasy novel by Hermann Goedsche and, more darkly, the hand of the Russian secret police.
Sadly, despite its clearly fraudulent nature, The Protocols continues today to feed the fears of the credulous and to fan the flames of fanaticism and hate. --Perry M. Atterberry

It was once possible to request the original from Christian organizations but all have since succumb to world pressures. The only other place I have came across them in their original form was in excerpts in Henry Fords, The International Jew (Abridged). Other than this short book they have probably been completely removed from circulation.
Let me reassure you the original is very real and very sinister. There is no hint for forgery, it simply doesn't allow for it. It is an instructional for the present (pre-1905) and the future (with a small history lesson), it is certainly not a mad rant like the forgeries. Reading the original from a future point of view is mind blowing.
So I bought this copy, as it was cheap.
It's not a page turner. It's a thick dull read, but then again you don't buy a Haynes manual to understand your car and expect it to be an enthralling novel.
What the Protocols do is to enlighten the reader to current events. If this book is, as is claimed, a fraud, then it's the best fraudulent publication in the world ever.
It pretty much explains, wars, world leaders (how they are chosen and controlled) and the recent banking collapse (and how the banks remained rich) and how the common man will always follow his leaders and pay for everything. It explains how so few can dominate so many and how the populous are fooled into thinking they live in a democracy.
Like I say, it's a manual that explains/claims how the world is and will be run by an elite few.
If its all lies then its the most truthful lies I have ever read, leaving me with one question: If it is all nonsense, then what wisdom and insight did the original author have all those years ago to understand what would happen in the next 100 years and more?
Am I anti-jew; definitely not.
Am I anti-zionist; definitely yes and with every fibre of my being. Zionism is as Nazism was, national socialism at the expense of a people with both political ideals being as anti-semetic as each other (Though the Nazis did help create israel when they helped the Turkic jews move to Semetic Palestine via the Transfer Agreement, making the Nazis less "anti-semetic" than any zionist.
Should you read the book? Yes. Can you refute most of its contents? I doubt it
Very grateful to the author for compiling this.
This needs to be read in conjunction with excerpts of the Talmud that deals with non-Jews.
What is written in this book mirrors exactly what is going on in the world today.
