The book is a cau­tion­ary tale on many lev­els; it is also an impor­tant his­tor­i­cal doc­u­ment and an excel­lent read. It was not easy to get through this book, and I had trep­i­da­tion about read­ing it at all. But I’m glad I did and you will be, too.

If I disregard the foreword...this would be a very good book...It made this work seem like it was going to be anti-semitic, which the foreword clearly is.
