With this one weighty volume of 54 chapters (and extensive notes), a reader can learn how far Holocaust scholarship has progressed and what areas will be discussed for generations to come." --Kirkus Reviews "Recognizing the passionately controversial nature of the field, the editors have opted for variety over unanimity. Competently and unobtrusively, they have brought together a stimulating collection of high-quality essays that should be useful to specialists and general readers alike. Essential for all libraries." --Choice "Destined to become an essential resource." --Booklist "... this magnificent collection of essays is surely among [the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's] greatest achievements to date... The range of the essays is nothing short of breathtaking." --Jerusalem Post
