This short, punchy and very readable work takes a penetrating look at the role of Jews in world history, from Biblical times to the 20th century. It is also a lucid exposition of Jewish psychology, motives, and methods of operating. It provides a probing look at Judaism and Jewish attitudes toward non-Jewish humanity over the centuries, with provocative insight into the meaning of the Old Testament.

This book is based on numerous talks by the author, Dietrich Eckart, with his friend and colleague, Adolf Hitler. Although presented as a dialogue, in the form of a back-and- conversation, it is not meant as an actual transcript. Instead, it is a reconstruction or synthesis of remarks from many conversations of the two men from 1919 through 1923. They quote passages from the Old and New Testaments, the Jewish Talmud, and more recent sources to support their view that through the centuries Jews have played an often-deceitful role that, on balance, has been harmful to non-Jews.

Dietrich Eckart (1868- 1923) was a journalist, a noted playwright, and a political activist. He played an important role in the early National Socialist movement, and for a time was editor of the main NS newspaper. He died a few weeks after the November 1923 Munich “putsch,” Hitler’s unsuccessful attempt to seize power by force. The uncompleted manuscript of this work was found among Eckart’s papers after his death, and was published some months later.

In spite of its brevity, this is a valuable work for an understanding of Hitler and the National Socialist worldview. It shows that, contrary to what some have claimed, Hitler’s views on Jews and the Jewish role in history were not an expression of mere prejudice or emotion, or a pose or scapegoating device to gain power. Instead, this book shows that Hitler’s views on “the Jewish question” were sincerely held, carefully considered, and based on much thought and study.

Hitler held Eckert in his regard. He concluded the second volume of his autobiographical book, Mein Kampf, with words of praise and gratitude for Eckart.

Translated from the German by William L. Pierce, who also wrote the foreword for this edition, which includes 15 pages of endnotes.
