"an eye-opener to a new generation of American readers" -- Publisher's Weekly, May 29, 1980

I have the added advantage of having been acquainted with Al Lee, and when I discussed Ford with him, his comment, "Henry Ford was human and, as such, fallible," echoed in my mind while I continued my research.
There is a more recent book with the same title, written by a Jewish man. I understand that it is absolutely scathing of Ford for his actions against the Jews. Nonetheless, by the time I reached page 47 in Lee's book, my stomach was churning. Even a fair, unbiased report about Ford's treatment of Jewish persons as a group (Ford differentiated between Jews as individuals and the group, yet never bothered to examine that inconsistency) does not reflect well on the man in this regard.
An excellent book, which will be valuable to anyone examining Henry Ford, the man, is Henry Ford: An Interpretation - by Samuel S. Marquis, who knew Ford as his minister, social friend, employee and ex-employee. Wayne State University Press reprinted the 1923 book that Ford did his best to squelch. Marquis, too, is very fair and the human Ford is revealed, "warts and all," but also some of the good about the man.
Even the Protocols he so relentlessly pushed, forgery or not, have proven quite prophetic.
If all of the things warned about pre-1963, after which the Khazarian mafia succeeded in shutting down dissent, have mostly come about, then who was wrong, and who were truly the evil ones?
An American citizen, not US subject.
The best part of the book had nothing to do with anti-Semitism: an account of a libel trial in which Ford fought an accusation that he was "ignorant" but in doing so proved his ignorance. For example, when asked about the American Revolution, he said "I recall something like that happened in 1812." I find it reassuring to know that today's teenagers aren't the only people ignorant about history.
