Review of The Holocaust

“Historiographer Black generally attempts to avoid emotion, ‘an abstraction that means smashing living babies’ skulls against walls,’ in writing about ultimately incomprehensible genocide… A compact and cogent academic account of the Holocaust.”
Kirkus Reviews

“This is a valuable addition to the literature on the Holocaust. This excellent brief study places the Holocaust in the context of Germany’s military strategy in World War II. Black insightfully explores important and still unresolved questions concerning the nature and presence of evil in the world, and alerts readers to the ever-present dangers of divisiveness and prejudice in today’s political and theological climate.”
Ian J. Bickerton, coauthor of A History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict
