    80% of the story

    It's not easy to subscribe rationality to the irrational, but Baldwin does a fine job of documenting how Ford's seemingly normal upbringing inspired a hateful mind. He also gives fine treatment to a touchy issue within the Jewish community even today - how, and even whether, to respond to virulent anti-Semitism on a public stage. But the book fails to develop the climactic theme that it seems to build toward for hundreds of pages: What did Ford think of the Holocaust, both as it was developing and in retrospect? Or, put another way - in the twilight of his life, how did he feel about what he had inspired in Hitler? As it stands, the latter part of the book jumps from the pre-war period directly to his death after the war, pausing only to expound on the slave labor of Ford-Werke- a key fact in the company's history but also an unfortunate tangent from the focus on Henry Ford. I'm not sure how you can round out Ford's history without this chapter.

    At Last, Another Piece of the Puzzle Found

    I knew a girl in high school who had a bad reputation. Years later, we discovered that one boy, a rejected suitor, was responsibe for a number of 'stories' about her which it turns out, were absolutely false. I thought about that poor girl when I read how Henry Ford used his massive wealth to spread injurious lies about Jews on a world-wide basis. The lesson: the pen is indeed, mightier than he sword . . . and just as dangerous. Thank you Mr. Baldwin. This is a must for every library.
