Only did I receive the book to get the first impression that this is merely an amateur's work.
To start with, it is self published, meaning it didn't have to go through the value-check from any established publishing house. It's print-what-author-likes type of book and it showed in every way.
1) the quality of the print is bad, with un-conventional word spacing that fills to the edge of the page, which renders a very un-professional binding.
2) Apparently the index page in the end only listed names selected by the author deemed ink-worthy. I can't even find an entry for all the pages that consists of the central figure of the whole event - "Eugen Fischer"(More surprise on Fischer below).
3) It does not have a Bibliography in the end. Neither should you be expecting anything written in the correct citation format.
4)The deal breaker come when I flip open the table of content of the Volume One, there... in big bright shiny letters it says "Eugene Fischer".
Then I went to the specific chapter, it inconsistently uses the spelling "Eugene" over "Eugen". That does it!
The author made it very clear that this book is very important (to himself more than others apparently) and that this book in quotes: "takes 10 -15" years to write (which one 10 or 15? that's like half a decade apart).
But obviously to me that this a fantasy of a masterpiece that only exist in the author's head, because it's un-readable due to it's lack of proper citation, let alone the spelling error on the name of the person that planted the seed of Nazism to Hitler's head.
In conclusion, as much as it hurts to hear, A.E. Samaan you are an amateur.
I'm sorry your "10-15 years" went to those pages that I'm going to return after a few minutes of flipping. I'd really like to read your book the spelling error annihilate it's credibility.
Instead I suggest you to spend only 1/4 of your money and time to read this true gem of a book:
Illiberal Reformers: Race, Eugenics, and American Economics in the Progressive Era
by Thomas C. Leonard
2. The research is the most intense I have ever seen. It is comparable to Alex Haley's research which created Roots
3. It is more than just a book, it is a reference. If you are a student of history, you need this on your shelf
This 100 year history will expose the synergistic links of Progressive Liberalism and totalitarianism as it advances through American and world history. The reader will be introduced, in varying degrees, to various ideologies like atheism, Marxism, evolution, slavery, eugenics, racial segregation, sterilization, birth control, and Nazi Fascism via Hitler. In addition, the reader will be exposed to how these ideologies are linked and how they birthed new ideologies and drove totalitarian agendas, which are still in existence today, but with a changed name and a hidden historical past.
It is hard to capture in words the astounding effect this book is having in reshaping my understanding of history and reforming my worldview. My only wish is that the author would have gone back further to the late 1700’s to early 1800’s to include the ideologies associated with the “enlightenment” where science, reason, or man usurps God as Sovereign and places man/science/reason as sovereign. It is here that we see the exaltation of ideologies and philosophies that are being promoted to move society from a society that has historically worshipped God as its highest good to a secular society that worships something else in place of God as its highest good. If that time period were included to show this theological transition, then what would become more apparent to the reader is how the Bible records in history what happens to a society that once worshipped God as the highest good (basis for the founding of America) and left to worship something else as its highest good.
There is some additional information about the structure and format the reader should know about. The author fails to make it clear that this book is an "advanced readers copy". This is clarified in the book’s website but not in this copy. The author released his findings in paperback prior to finalizing them in hardbound as the vast amount of original research demanded this.
The reader should know it is an imposing book by its appearance and size. However, once you open up the book and just read the first page, which the author wisely utilizes to explain to the reader how, what, and why he wrote the book, you are drawn in and you will be hooked.
So, here is a book that the author literally invested 10-15 years of real, true, honest-to-goodness investigative research where he actually went to where the evidence was. These were places not many of us have ever visited and may not wish to, and in some cases, do not even know they existed. His experience about seeing, smelling, touching actual Nazi paraphernalia lends to the emotive force of his words as he begins to share a history that not many, if any of us, fully knew until you read the book.
The structure and format of the book is somewhat unique. Instead of explicitly numbered chapters with thematic titles, what you have are time periods or what I call “epochs”. These epochs work backward from the time period of Hitler to the time period of Carl Marx. I believe the author structured the book in this manner as a way of simulating the performance an autopsy. And like an autopsy, you work comprehensively and backwards, that is, you go deeper into the body to uncover the disease that led not only to this man’s death, but the death of over 60 million people.
This style also permits him to interject relevant points connected to our current time and culture which exposes the impact of that hidden history on our time. I found that this writing style presented the historical narrative like a documentary where the information flowed smoothly from one point to the next while showing its contemporary relevance alongside its historical relevance.
