Hitler's life or actions are barely discussed, the central theme is the WWII German genocide of Jews and how it has been viewed and represented from the end of the war up until the present. The author demonstrates how this genocide has been used to undermine ethnic identification and ethnic homogeneity in Western countries while at the same time, to strengthen ethnic identification in Israel and legitimise the dispossession of the Palestinian people. There are also essays on related topics such as the ADL, Hollywood and immigration to Western countries.
Overall, the essays are well written and well argued. My only complaint is that it would benefit from more rigorous references, for example, quotes are often merely attributed to an individual without references to explain exactly where the original came from.

Considering the perhaps provocatively chosen title of the book, I must admit to being somewhat intrigued by it, although also naturally sceptical, considering the obvious subject of a certain moustached man of some years ago. I vaguely remembered having read some of the author's essays in my youth many years ago, but I had more or less forgotten about their essence (they came back to mind one after the other whilst reading the book, though). I started reading this, and through the four major parts, the hours flew me by in a whirlwind of knowledge and insight: in fact I read the book in two sittings within 24 hours. After the always interesting forewords and editors note by Dr. Kevin B. MacDonald (author of among others the seminal The Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements) and Dr. Greg Johnson (author himself of Confessions of a Reluctant Hater), respectively, the book is divided into four major parts: "White Racial Nationalism", "The Jewish Question", "The Muslim Question" and finally "White Ethnomasochism". Some of the essays are rather long, but I was left in awe of their clarity and how easily the brilliant author makes his point in such a concise way that even his most ardent enemies would presumably nod in respect of his rhetorical skills, at least. Now, be aware, the author is very clear straight away: he is no National Socialist, which makes the title a very clever one, for his sole point on that issue is the fact that as long as his enemies brand anyone with even vaguely openly White genetic interests as a "Nazi", we'll be forced to think about these subjects and come up with a reasonable response, despite the nonsensical and hostile political nature of the claim.
For, as publisher Greg Johnson has shown with great emphasis in his must-read North American New Right, vol. 1, the New Right that has published this book, amongst others, definitively rejects any form of violence or "supremacism" associated, rightly or wrongly, with the Old Right. That being said, the points made by Vinson throughout the book is that we of European descent need to start thinking about issues of identity, history and to put it blatantly: the politics of identity, otherwise, we *will* disappear from history. Vinson is hilarious throughout the book when he cuts through all the mumbo-jumbo we've all gotten so used to when speaking about these issues, and thereby clearly show the reader the elephant in the room, often with great satiric effect. In fact, he had me laughing loudly by many of his insights: his perspective is indeed refreshing. An important point of some weight is his observation on page 43: "Contemporary Holocaust commemoration is in that respect a repudiation of Zionism, since it assumes the permanence of Jewish exile: Jews build Holocaust museums in the United States because they have no intention of leaving". In some many words, they're not really Zionist, after all, now, are they? If you want wish to have hundreds upon hundreds of such insights for a buck or two, then this is the book for you. The mode of writing is rather polemical, but he can also be quite scholarly when he wishes to appear as such. The general level of his essays is so high the book will be a gem in everyone's library, and a great starting place for that family member, colleague or friend that is *almost* there, but still hesitating. Do your children a favour, and purchase this completely hate-free book, to use the phrasing of Vinson's friends in New York. Five stars.
The central thrust of the book is not "Hitler." Instead it is a study on The Holocaust, where Jews were mistreated by German Nazis and other Europeans sympathetic to Nazi goals. The author doesn't quibble over numbers, or argue about the technical aspect of gas chambers, he focuses on the religious/mythological use of the Holocaust as an instrument of Jewish power and justification for Israeli Government and Military policy.
The book rounds out with essays that are beyond the scope of the above paragraph but are powerful nonetheless.
A hard hitting tract that is more like Martin Luther's "95 Thesis" or John Wycliffe's support of the Lollards than a neo-Nazi sort of publication.
The gist of the book is that Hitler was right when he championed his Aryan ideology and although his dogma was meant specifically for the Germans it holds true even today for the White people as a whole. It is very impressive that this book doesn't even attempt to debunk the Holocaust myth (it's too obvious that it is a bunch of lies and exaggerations) but demolishes it by a multitude of political arguments and by sheer common sense.
