Customer Review

on 25 January 2001
In a polemical barrage, Finklesten seeks to expose the 'truth' about the holocaust in recent history. Readers of Finklestein's book need to put it in its historical context. Peter Novick has written a balanced and highly persuasive account of the holocaust in collective memory, presenting an abundance of evidence to support his finely nuanced argument. Finklestein has carried this to a ridiculous extreme, and it is difficult to describe this book as anything less than a rant. It is on the very extreme end of the current reaction against orthodox holocaust perspectives, and it would be very dangerous to read this without some proper historiographical contextualisation. Nevertheless, it is thought provoking, and at times makes for a interesting read, hence the three stars.
