World Without Civilization : Mass Murder and the Holocaust, History, and Analysis
This work, a two-volume set, is the result of over ten years of research in western Europe. It is not only a historical account of the Holocaust, but also an analysis of how, when, where, and why it took place. As a sub-theme, and perhaps just as important, is the realization that what happened originally to the Armenians at the start of the 20th century and continued with the Jews of Europe, was experimentation in the settling of problems with minorities by means of genocide. This history and analysis of the Holocaust serves as a warning that genocide is becoming a worldwide technique and method of domestic policy.

'World Without Civilization' makes the case, rather well, that the solution lies in world-wide democracy. This history and analysis of the Holocaust serves as an alert that genocide is becoming a world-wide technique and method of domestic policy. * Sir Read Alot Book Review *
