Summary"This is the first account of Eichmann's life to appear since his trial... Drawing on recently unearthed documents, David Cesarani shows how Eichmann became the Nazi Security Service's 'expert' on Jewish matters. He argues controversially that Eichmann was not necessarily predisposed to mass murder and explores the remarkable, largely unknown period in his career when he learned how to become a perpetrator of genocide." —Back cover
