A critical examination of Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's work, "Hitler's Willing Executioners."
From the Publisher:
Two leading critics -- Norman G. Finkelstein and Ruth Bettina Birn -- claim that Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's work "Hitler's Willing Exectutioners" is not scholarship, but a web of misrepresentations and contradictions. This definitive statement on the Goldhagen phenomenon could be called a cautionary tale on the corruption of scholarship by ideological zealotry.
