By Porat, Dina

Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1990. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Second-hand copy, no damage to the books apart from underlining and highlighting by the previous owner who was a Holocaust scholar. Includes a chronology of events from September 21, 1939, through to May 8, 1945 with the surrender of Germany, includes extensive bibliography, bibliographic glossary & index. The author's study stands out among the historical works published by the scholars of this post-1948 generation, because of both the controversial subject to the dresses and the standards of scholarly research as well as intellectual honesty entertains. During the early years of the State of Israel, the themes dealt with by her were in notable instances, the object of fierce polemics; no attempt was made to reach substantiated historical evaluation. The author's conclusions, as free as possible from etiological stances, do not pretend to be definitive, demonstrating the author's sensitivity the issues discussed. – Page X Full number line.
