Waldheim

Author : Robert Edwin Herzstein

Available : Rented
Age Group :Adults
After two years of controversy, a balanced interpretation of the Waldheim affair has appeared. Herzstein, a leading scholar of the Nazi era, has produced a thorough analysis of Waldheim´s wartime activities that is solidly rooted in primary source materials. Clearly superior to Bernard Cohen and Luc Rosenzweig´s irresponsible Waldheim ( LJ 6/1/87), Herzstein´s book supplements documentary analysis with personal interviews of key figures, including Waldheim himself and former Chancellor Bruno Kreisky. The book also addresses the issue of Waldheim´s personal guilt in the larger context of Austria´s general collaboration with the Nazis. A fine work, highly recommended for most libraries. Joseph W.
