Reviews

'A remarkable, pathbreaking achievement. More than half a century after Auschwitz a group of largely young academics, all experts in the fields of their scholarship, render a critical and comprehensive account on the Historiography of the Holocaust. The monumental study is a must for everyone engaged in Holocaust research, teaching and education. It sets the tone for future debate both at public and academic level.' - Konrad Kwiet, Adjunct Professor for Jewish Studies and Roth Lecturer in Holocaust Studies, University of Sydney, Australia

'Dan Stone is to be congratulated for having brought together an exceptionally nuanced, sophisticated, and well-focused collection of essays from a wide range of disciplines and national perspectives. Eminent specialists are well represented here, as are the newer insights of a younger generation of scholars. The end-result offers an excellent survey of virtually the whole range of historical thinking and writing in Holocaust Studies today. This is the book for anyone who is looking for a state-of-the-art, authoritative handbook; it will be read and re-read.' - Professor Jonathan Webber, UNESCO Chair in Jewish and Interfaith Studies, University of Birmingham, UK

'The Historiography of the Holocaust will undoubtedly become a standard work, indispensable for those teaching in the field...Dan Stone's edited volume will provide a compass for those entering the field and a standard of excellence for those interested in historiography in general and the Holocaust in particular.' - Milton Shain, Journal of Modern Jewish Studies
