The holocaust

Critical historical approaches

Donald Bloxham and Tony Kushner

Published by Manchester University Press

New Frontiers in History MUP

  • Provides the first overview of the Holocaust that is comprehensive, cohesive but also critical and independently minded
  • Summarises and criticises the huge body of scholarship on the Holocaust, looking at Holocaust victim testimony and its uses, perpetrators and the perpertration process and the role of the bystander
  • Approaches the Holocaust as a historical event, but also through literary studies, cultural studies, film studies and geographical perspectives, highlighting the importance of the Holocaust to other disciplines, not just historical studies
  • A highly readable and challenging book that has an authority and breadth of coverage lacking in other shorter, single volume treatments of the Holocaust
