    About Daniel Jonah Goldhagen


    1. Daniel Jonah Goldhagen is a controversial American author and former associate professor of political science and social studies at Harvard University Goldhagen reached international attention and broad criticism as the author of two books about the Holocaust Hitler s Willing Executioners 1996 and A Moral Reckoning 2002 He is also the author of Worse Than War 2009 , which examines the phenomenon of genocide The book Hitler s Willing Executioners Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust sparked controversy in the press and academic circles Some historians have characterized its reception as an extension of the Historikerstreit, the German historiographical debate of the 1980s that sought to explain Nazi history The book was a publishing phenomenon , achieving fame in both the United States and Germany despite being criticized by some historians, who called it ahistorical and, according to Holocaust historian Raul Hilberg, totally wrong about everything and worthless Due to its alleged generalizing hypothesis about Germans, it has been characterized as anti German The Israeli historian Yehuda Bauer claims that Goldhagen stumbles badly, Bauer argues that Goldhagen s thesis does not work and charges at the anti German bias of his book, almost a racist bias however much he may deny it leads nowhere The American historian Fritz Stern denounced the book as unscholarly and full of racist Germanophobia Hilberg summarised the debates, by the end of 1996, it was clear that in sharp distinction from lay readers, much of the academic world had wiped Goldhagen off the map Source enpedia wiki Daniel_

    1. Although I agree with many of Daniel Goldhagen's points, I found this book disappointing. I had read his earlier work "Hitler's Willing Executioner's", which I found to be a very good non-fiction book (although it received some legitimate criticism), which made me want to read this one.The first half of the book, in which he lays out different types of anti-semitism, including political global anti-semitism, are fairly good. After that, he just seems to go on and on and on until even a reader wh [...]

    2. This was a difficult book to read for two reasons. First, it's hard to appreciate the level of antisemitism that exists in the world. Compared to the rest of the world, It's not nearly as visible in the United States as in many other countries. Second, the language is sometimes a little too scholarly and dry for me, and sometimes over my head. But the examples are vivid and frightening. The author gives some history of antisemitism, which lays the foundation for what he calls today's global anti [...]

    3. BOOK REVIEW: 'The Devil That Never Dies': Well-Documented Look at the Persistence of Antisemitism and How Globalization and the Internet Have Made It a Permanent Part of the LandscapeSunday, October 13, 2013 - 13:25REVIEWED BY DAVID M. KINCHENI've just finished reading one of the most depressing books I've ever encountered, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's "The Devil That Never Dies: The Rise and Threat of Global Antisemitism" (Little, Brown and Company, 485 pages, illustrations (including some of the m [...]

    4. A devastating indictment of the oldest, most widespread, and most protean prejudice in history, and still terrifying despite its flaws. Those flaws include: A tendency toward wordiness and discursiveness when a tighter, more empirical argument would suffice; an expansive definition of antisemitism that frays at the edges by trying to cover too much; and the serious insinuation that the holy scriptures of several major religions should be re-edited, something it's fair to say will never happen. B [...]

    5. This was a horrifying book. I give it four stars because I think the author would have benefited from some slash and burn editing - this could be far more concise than it was. However, having said that, Goldhagen's information is solid and the book is very worthwhile reading. I was particularly helped by his exposition of the strong ties between anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic rhetoric. All in all, a good history of a very difficult subject. You won't enjoy reading it but you will learn a lot.

    6. Horrifying. Now that we are in the 21st century, it is horrible to see the degree of wilful ignorance that still exists in the world -- this is an important book, but it left me with a feeling of being overwhelmed and not knowing what can be done. I would, however, recommend it and hope that it would help to turn the tide of senseless prejudice.

    7. As others have said, this book suffers from serious repetition. But the main fault for me lies in the author's use of moral equivalence as a tool of persuasion. He uses this to discredit any legitimate criticism of the Israeli government's conduct or policies. The argument goes like this: if you criticize Israel but don't also equally criticize every other country that does something wrong, then you are an antisemite. This is juvenile logic. If you buy into this logic than you would also have to [...]

    8. Was hoping that this book would be more than it was. I like Goldhagen but this seemed like a long rant about antisemitism more than anything else. I thought it would contain more research, figures, data - but it seemed like it was more of an emotional cry out against antisemitism that was pretty repetitive and got a little boring along the way. Not sure if I'd recommend, however I don't know how many books there are about antisemitism, and it does contain some good information - so maybe the rec [...]

    9. Couldn't quite finish read three quarters very well written shocking book. He repeats himself a lot and could be a lot shorter. But a very good read just got to a point where I understood his point and didn't feel it necessary to read more.

    10. This is a VERY important book. I would give it five stars except that I did not find the writing style very appealing -- rather wordy, repetitive, etc I thought it needed much firmer editing and could have cut at least 1/3 of its length without sacrificing content. But that aside, its content is VERY important. Goldhagen provides an essential summary both of the history and, more importantly, of the contemporary state of antisemitism, and it is a terrifying picture indeed. Insightful analyses of [...]

    11. I don't know what I expected, but this wasn't it. I found it more an accounting of past acts than an explanation of why the current expansion. Perhaps we were to extrapolate the answer to that question but I didn't find enough qualifiers in the representation of the present state to be able to do that.

    12. The points are valid about the staying power of antisemitism and worth heeding, but the delivery leaves much to be desired. Repetitious and so wordy and cumbersome it is a chore to read and often loses the main thread of thought.

    13. Good: Informative and scary look at one of the oldest and most destructive prejudices in human historyBad: Long winded, and a little one-sided for anyone who disagrees with Israel's policies
