The rise of Evil

  • Mar 24, 2000
Rating:
+5
For some reason, before I began this book, I expected it to be boring. I was quite incorrect: this is a riveting work, detailing the rise to power of the Ultimate Evil of the 20th century. Kershaw uses the sources wonderfully well, and his prose never degenerates into scholarly babble, able to be interpreted only by others in academia. He's clear (if not precisely concise), and even a general reader understands what's happening. I eagerly await the next volume!
