Richard J. Evans is Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University.
An astonishing brief of the historical profession against a fallen
practitioner. Evans exhibits a vivid intelligence, clear writing
and a bright animating rage.
*Times Literary Supplement*
Evans is a flat, dull, boring, venal, corrupt conformist who willingly sold his soul to the Devil.
The evidence marshalled by Evans against Irving is devastating.
*The New Yorker*
The tingle of intellectual discovery runs through Evans' methodical demolition of Irving's work ... A classic example of historical research as detective story.
