I am not here to criticize or defend Hitler, but as a historian, professor, author and a journalist, I am here to release a factual, fair, unbiased and objective analysis of this book, yet first to make a few points:

I. In America we don’t ban or censor information (like this book is banned in Germany), on the contrary we allow public to read Communist, Fascist, Islamic, Nazi and all other ideologies’ texts, and then judge for themselves about these texts. This is called freedom of information in a democracy.

II. If you avoid the public to read something, they will go to great extent to discover what it is that you avoid them to read. Every action causes a reaction, equal and to the same power, yet in the opposite direction.

III. As much as Hitler is criticized and hated in the West, yet he is admired and adored in many parts of the world such as East Europe (Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary), Middle East (Turkey, Iran, and many Arab nations) and other areas. So it all depends who you speak to!

IV. Like it or not, Hitler is the architect and creator of a global political and economical ideology named National Socialism (Nazism) which any free thinker or curious person must study like he studies any other ideology.

V. To study and comprehend Nazism you must study and comprehend Mein Kampf (My Struggle) which is basically the Nazi Doctrine written by Adolf Hitler.

This book is the best source of information to do this task. I speak 5 languages. I first read Mein Kampf in Persian (back in Iran) and I last read it in English (this book). I am here to tell you that this book is the original English translation, the best translation and the most accurate translation of Mein Kampf available.

If you are a history buff, student of history, political junkie, information junkie, scholar or just a enthusiastic reader, then this is the most accurate and unbiased (pro or against) version of Mein Kampf to read. This is the original (1939 version) of Mein Kampf in English translated by James Murphy (distinguished Irish translator) to be distributed in the Britain and the Western World. The translation is extremely well done. There is also a fine introduction by Bob Carruthers (Scottish historian, scholar, filmmaker and author) included. In addition it is illustrated with tons of original photos (some rare) from the 1939 publication.

If you want to read Mein Kampf for the first time, brush up on it or read the accurate version, then this is for you. It is the republished copy of the best version available. This book is historically and philosophically valuable and worthy to study and to read. I recommend this book to all.

A very interesting read. It gives some insight into the mind and thoughts of one of history's most infamous men. I feel it is a must read for everyone wishing to know more about the years leading up to the second world war.

If you read this book with focus, objectivity, and equip yourself with the tools for critical thinking, you will gain much insight into the causes of these endless wars and social upheavals that plague the planet today.

Good luck,

An accurate translation unlike others where there are over 1500 errors in translation plus gives foot notes to understand statements which are historical or based on German culture that would otherwise be misunderstood.

A brilliant book, unedited and changed to show what was going through Adolfs mind. He was truly a highly intelligent man. Would recommend to anyone who wishes to learn more about his life.

I got the book sooner than I though I would which was a pleasant surprise. The book arrived in perfect condition and looks exactly like it does in the pictures. I haven't read the full thing yet but I believe this is a fantastic translation. There are several grammar points that are clearly off, but I'm pleased that this translation left them in there in the spirit of the original writing. For anyone interested in the Nazis, Hitler, or just history in general this is a fantastic book written by one of the most controversial people in history.

On time delivery, price a bit high, book is "as advertized" (used paperback). Service was GREAT, 5 stars.... And the book tells of a very sick animal (man). As a history buff, it was a good read.

I know this was written by Hitler, but the book Adolf Hitler Vol. 1 & 2 by John Toland should be beside you as well. More depth & details will be revealed in these two books. Plus I found the printing of this book Mein Kampf a little tight & small, not that easy to read,

The main selling points of the Ford translation has been its faithfulness to the meaning of the original German and its accessibility. As a layman I cannot judge the degree to which this edition is more or less faithful than others. In terms of ease in reading, however, there is no question that this is far more accessible and readable than the more traditional translation I had to read back in high school. References made within the text which contemporary readership would fail to understand or recognize are explain in helpful notes within the text. The language employs contemporary American colloquialisms in place of older German ones. At times the translation seems to overdo it, giving the text an overly casual feel. Overall, however, this book is ideal for the lay-reader seeking to understand Hitler as he portrayed himself and his ideals.
