As Germany made its manner during the upheaval of the commercial Revolution, the problems of the torpid, economically backward German majority stood in marked distinction to the social and financial luck of the agile Jewish minority. This good fortune aroused envy and worry one of the Gentile inhabitants, growing fertile flooring for murderous Nazi politics.

Aly's account of this deadly social dynamic opens up a brand new vantage aspect at the maximum crime in heritage and is certain to steered heated debate for years to come.
