Abstract

| 147 Nazis that Jews could assimilate into the German national economy. The veteran exception also allowed the Nazi government to soften the economic impact of simply stripping all Jewish lawyers of their profession at once. Meanwhile, the law allowed the Nazis to consolidate power, atomize Jewish lawyers from other lawyers, and implement hierarchies based on whether one was Aryan or Jewish. The exception, however, was "bound to be temporary because it was inherently unstable" (117). Next, Jewish lawyers were ejected from bar associations. The final step of prohibiting the remainder of Jews from the practice of law altogether was a short one. The excellent essays in The Law in Nazi Germany contrast the simultaneous use of the law and disregard of legality to accomplish discrimination, segregation, and ultimately genocide. The voices of the contributors are both accessible and precise. It is a short, readable collection attractive to specialists and general readership alike. Thomas E. Simmons University of South Dakota School of Law a Thousand daRknesses: lies and TRuTh in holoCausT FiCTion By Ruth Franklin. Oxford University Press, 2011. 272 pp. The scholar James E.
