Product description


"Brilliant, passionate, provocative." --Micha Brumlik, Die Zeit

"Consistently absorbing ... a penetrating and provocative study [that] offers shrewd insight into the German mindset over the last two centuries." --The Jewish Daily Forward

"The most important contribution to the massive literature on the subject. Aly's analysis of a deeply rooted social malady has made the incomprehensible comprehensible." --Michael Blumenthal, director of the Jewish Museum Berlin
