Publisher's Summary

In her acclaimed 1993 book, Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt called David Irving, a prolific writer of books on World War II, "one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial". The following year, after Lipstadt's book was published in the United Kingdom, Irving led a libel suit against Lipstadt and her publisher. She prepared her defense with the help of a first-rate team of solicitors, historians, and experts, and a dramatic trial unfolded.
Denial, previously published as History on Trial, is Lipstadt's riveting, blow-by-blow account of this singular legal battle, which resulted in a formal denunciation of a Holocaust denier that crippled the movement for years to come. Lipstadt's victory was proclaimed on the front page of major newspapers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that "history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory".

A must read

This book is fascinating. I think Holocaust denial is very interesting and I loved being able to read a book that laid out the biggest arguments for Holocaust denial and how those arguments are met and addressed through historical fact and testimony.

A lawyer's procedural

It's like the second half of "Law & Order." I now understand what Oscar Wilde faced in the 1890's. Odd that British law had not advanced since then. Here's a team that literally beat the system, but it still took a massive effort.
