Good book. Lying about Hitler by Richard Evans

by Ziks511 / January 8, 2011 3:50 PM PST

The outcome of the David Irving libel case against Deborah Lipstadt for accusing him of falsifying the facts. Many of the on lookers, including historians lost track of the fact that Irving was the man accused.

"As an expert witness for the defense in last year's Irving-Lipstadt trial, Evans (history, Cambridge Univ.) was charged with determining whether David Irving was, as Deborah Lipstadt asserted, a Holocaust denier. Evans spent two years researching Irving's work, tracing his sources, and then evaluating his publications and public speeches. Moving easily from analysis of Irving's abuse of primary documents to a discussion of what constitutes legitimate historical methodology, Evans presents compelling proof that Irving is a Holocaust denier and why he should not be considered a legitimate member of the historical profession."

It's on my list
