Abstract

Book Reviews plored, but we might wonder whether the parameters of this anthology place limits on a proper consideration of continuities. Indeed, Madureira addresses this very issue when he asks, "are we not foreclosing a sustained exploration of how modalities of colonial power can endure into the present, when we concentrate exclusively on the link between the Herero Wars and the Holocaust?" (p. 280). By including a chapter with such a perspective, Langbehn and Salama seem to suggest that we can perhaps have it both ways. Thus, we should recognize this book as a touchstone for students of imperialism and genocide while reminding ourselves that colonial history's utility for explaining the crimes of the Third Reich need not eclipse its own intrinsic value nor preclude its potential to illuminate beyond the darkness of the Holocaust. j. laurence hare University of Arkansas Good Arabs: The Israeli Security Agencies and the Israeli Arabs, 1948­1967.
