Description: A bestseller throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, and scheduled for translation into sixteen languages, The Holocaust Industry was hailed by the Guardian newspaper in London as 'the most controversial book of the year.' In a devastating postscript for this new paperback edition, Norman G. Finkelstein documents the Holocaust industry's theft of Swiss compensation monies earmarked for Holocaust survivors, and its shameless whitewash of the U.S.'s responsibility for Holocaust compensation.
This new edition includes updated material discussing the initial reception to the book's publication.
Review(s): "...Finkelstein has raised some important and uncomfortable issues... examples cited can be breathtaking in their angry accuracy and irony." - Jewish Quarterly
