The book's main achievement is its challenge of a powerful discourse that links Holocaust memory with moral superiority.--Katrin Antweiler"Kult Online" (05/18/2020)
A clear contribution to the sociology of racism and racial discrimination in the modern era.--Sanford R. Silverburg"Association of Jewish Libraries News and Reviews" (02/01/2020)
Readers will find this book a thoughtful first step for investigating whether a global Holocaust memory exists and, if so, the uses to which it has been put.--J. Kleiman"CHOICE" (12/01/2019)
Together, the contributions delineate the complex history of Holocaust memory, recognize its contingency, and provide a foundation from which to evaluate its moral legitimacy and political and social effectiveness.--Willis M. Buhle"Midwest Book Review" (09/01/2019)
The experience of reading this book is, in some sense, an encounter with the sort of "radical otherness" Bashir and Goldberg talk about. To put it mildly, it's an unconventional way of looking at the Holocaust and its various consequences. This is not the kind of book you can curl up with and get caught in its sweeping narrative. There is, after all, no one narrative. And, that is the point.-- (08/22/2019)
An inspiring and challenging book which compellingly links Holocaust memory and racism in the postwar world. Not afraid of tackling big and complex issues, the authors show how different understandings of Nazi genocide shaped responses to problems of 'race', not always in ways one might expect. Highly recommended.-- (02/19/2019)
This invaluable book asks necessary questions about the development and effect of Holocaust memory in varying regimes of racial governance. Its authors answer them with empirically saturated and conceptually informed case studies that lay bare the complex and mutually constitutive relationship between the many racist atrocities of the twentieth century.-- (02/19/2019)
