Encyclopedia of the Holocaust

Book - 1990
Rate this:
The Holocaust as event and idea has reached and influenced every corner of the world: from history and politics to religion and culture; from the Nazi apparatus to the racist ideas (and ideologies) that fueled it; from chronicles of mass destruction to tales of resistance and rebellion. All of these aspects (and indeed almost every aspect) are covered here in original signed articles, current in scholarship and easily readable. The writing is neither dispassionate nor hysterical, but keenly analytical from a variety of committed perspectives. The set is thoroughly indexed and cross- referenced, and illustrated with rare photographs, maps, and diagrams. A chronology of events related to the Holocaust helps to compensate for the fragmentation inevitable in encyclopedic arrangement. Even the term "Holocaust" is subjected to examination. Certain to become the standard reference on the subject. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
