In her acclaimed 1993 book, Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt called David Irving, a prolific writer of books on World War II, "one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial". The following year, after Lipstadt's book was published in the United Kingdom, Irving led a libel suit against Lipstadt and her publisher. She prepared her defense with the help of a first-rate team of solicitors, historians, and experts, and a dramatic trial unfolded.
Denial, previously published as History on Trial, is Lipstadt's riveting, blow-by-blow account of this singular legal battle, which resulted in a formal denunciation of a Holocaust denier that crippled the movement for years to come. Lipstadt's victory was proclaimed on the front page of major newspapers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that "history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory".

Justice History and the Law
- S. Moorcroft
Theory vs Fact. History in court.
Yes, as a read there may have been times I gave up on it. As a audiobook I felt it flowed more.
The whole defence team, Lipstadt especially. I felt she highlight how the case affected her life and career,as well as expressing how important the case was to the communities she belong to; Jewish, historian etc
No. But she was perfect for the material, formal yet humane.
Shocked by the whole reviewist approach. Encouraged by Lipstadt's resolve.
I've always loved a good conspiracy theory. This book however has ingrained in me the importance of fact based decision making.
