For years, those who claimed that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps was nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy, were treated as harmless cranks. But over the past decade, they have begun to gain a hearing in respectable arenas. In this text, a social and intellectual history of Holocaust denial, Lipstadt shows how, despite thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence, this idea has become an international movement, with organized chapters, "independent" research centres and official publications that promote a "revisionist" view of recent history.

Strong medicine... An antidote to the moral and intellectual virus that has spread from the crackpot fringe to the very heart of public discourse in the media, the courts and the world's universities. (Los Angeles Times)
Important and impassioned... it illuminates with skill and clarity, not only the peculiarly disturbing world of the Holocaust deniers, but also the methods they have used to distort history, the motives that have driven them to do so, and the vulnerabilities of our educational systems, our culture, and ourselves that have made so many in our society ready to listen to them. (New York Times Book Review)
