   schema:reviewBody ""Bestselling author Nicholson Baker has created a compelling work of nonfiction bound to provoke discussion and controversy - a wide-ranging perspective on the political and social landscape that gave rise to World War II." "Human Smoke delivers a closely textured, deeply moving indictment of the treasured myths that have romanticized much of the 1930s and '40s. Incorporating meticulous research and well-documented sources - including newspaper and magazine articles, radio speeches, memoirs, and diaries - the book juxtaposes hundreds of interrelated moments of decision, brutality, suffering, and mercy. Vivid glimpses of political leaders and their dissenters illuminate and examine the gradual, horrifying advance toward overt global war and Holocaust."--Jacket." ;
