The most damning book review ever written?

This week's New Statesman carries a damning review by historian Richard J Evans on A.N. Wilson's new biography of Adolf Hitler - it is well worth checking out as the review is a fine lesson in the value of history and the role of historians in society - as is indeed most of Evans's writing for the New Statesman.

On the subject of great book reviews in general - that are online - check out Duncan Hallas on Martin Bernal's Black Athena, and Alex Callinicos on EP Thompson's The Poverty of Theory and Christopher Hill's The Experience of Defeat
