Format: Paperback
This is a small 150 page book that comments a little on Solzhenitsyn's "Two Hundred Years Together". But Larson's view of Solzhenitsyn, which is inescapable in his little book, is that Solzhenitsyn possibly had a good measure of Judeophobia, which seems very doubtful even from the flimsy evidence that Larson offers.

Larson has the annoying and egotistical habit of including extensive quotations in Russian and German with no translation. He could just as well as have said, "Gee! look at the foreign languages I can write here; too bad you don't know them too; and just for that I am not going to translate them for you."

It seems to me that this book contributes little to the questions at hand and that are implicit in its title.

He takes Solzhenitsyn to task for including photos of six heads -- all Jews -- of various Gulags in Vol. II of the "The Gulag Archipelago", whereas there were other ethnics, as well, in those positions. Well, Mr. Larson, you were not the one who was in these horrific prisons, it was Solzhenitsyn. Why shouldn't we trust Solzhenitsyn about whom to emphasize as the bad guys here, instead of you and other armchair commentators?

Solzhenitsyn reported that two-thirds of the commandants of the Gulags were Jews, (and many were rabbis), and that most of the sixty-six million victims who perished in the Gulags were Christians.

Also Larson has a rather supercilious account of the genesis of "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion". The tired old canard that the Protocols are a forgery no longer holds water. Larson doesn't mention that a Swiss court held that "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" were NOT a forgery.

Their true origin is more likely one of two described by two Jews.

Over-priced! Nothing is better than to read an original. Otherwise it looks like the Russian game "Spoilt phone."
