Reviews for Mein Kampf
Don't buy this version of Mein Kampf (Jaico edition, 11 euros).
It is full of spelling errors and sometimes the dots or commas are missing.
Other than that, this edition seems to be the James Murphy Translation. I have not read other translations, but this one is very readable in any case.
I compared this translation to a Murphy translation downloaded of the internet, and this one seems to be the same.
But if you're going to spend 11 euros on a book, I expect it to be at least proof readed before it is printed.
Bad. Very bad. Buy at your own risk. If I knew this, I would have bought another version.
BTW I believe anyone with a decent education should read this book. It is very dry and the reasoning of Hitler is very bizarre at most points, but it is better to see it coming then forget the lessons of history.... by PA

With What You Know!...
I heard a brief statement in this nanny state of a country (UK) that several so called 'celebrities' and other high uppers wanted to have this book made illegal because of its racist content and anti-semetic tone.
I read the book prior to the programme so i had other thoughts, the people who mainly called for this where quite obvious more likely to look at the front picture than read the contents of it, so i thought their thoughts on the subject to be somewhat comical at the least!.
On a personal note, the book i bought after a study of the holocaust and its causes and what drove the nazi war machine, what we can learn from these writings and perhaps in future or present be able to spot when these signs are arising again and be able to challenege them instead of thinking they be a little to extreme here or they which alot people believed in them times i read. By reading and understanding what we know now of the events of the WW2, the final solution, the capture of foreign lands, the anti semetic tone of polictics and the treatment of pow's captured in these occupied countries, we can only then understand where this came from, this book to much of the degree does that it provides the bridge tunderstand the end of the 'Great War' what drove Hitlers hatred of the Jews, a grudge left over from a misinformed war.
The book dosent however call upon all the other terrible crimes commited under the nazi regime such as the night of the long knives, killing of the head of sa and then the overall grouping of one 'SS' the opening of concentration camps that would then become death camps when the Final Solution was answered by Himmler. It does however, maybe much to the dislike of us English show how much Hitler had based his model of Facism and dictatorship and empires upon the success of us Brits abroad, even mentioning in breif the camps the the English used during the Boer War which later concentration camps were to be modelled on and the capture of a so called 'Sub Human People' as in india where a hand full of high flying democrats could hold a 100 indians without the rise of a resistance, this drove Hitlers dream of world domination and by banning such a book we are removing the pages of history that should NEVER again be bought to bear, at least i hope not in my life! by Michael Bird
