Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A persuasive argument for peace and pacifism, this critical study of the decades leading up to World War II offers insightful profiles of the world leaders, politicians, business people, bankers, and others whose personal politics, ideologies, and agendas provided an inevitable barrier to the peace process and whose actions led to the outbreak of war. 125,000 first printing.


Review:

"Nicholson Baker's HUMAN SMOKE is a meticulously researched and well-constructed book demonstrating that World War II was one of the biggest, most carefully plotted lies in modern history."

Mark Kurlansky, Los Angeles Times, 03/09/2008

Review:

"A book that can adduce Goebbels as an authority in order to vilify Churchill has clearly lost touch with all moral and intellectual bearings....That people who think this way about the past will apply the same self-righteous ignorance to the politics of the present and future makes HUMAN SMOKE not just a stupid book, but a scary one."

Adam Kirsch, New York Sun, 03/12/2008
