Vichy France and the Jews

with Robert Paxton

"This superb and definitive description of Vichy's policy...has two conspicuous merits. It pulverizes the defense of those apologists of Vichy who claim that Petain and Laval weren't as bad as all that. It also allows the historical debate the shift from 'what happened?' to 'why did it happen?" - New York Review of Books
