Overview

The best lesson one can draw from this book is that being a great industrialist does not necessarily convey expertise in other subjects. The International Jew began as a four-volume set of pamphlets, published by Henry Ford in the 1920s, in which he attempted to justify his anti-Semitic views by couching his beliefs not as racism but as "fact." What follows is an unwieldy and meandering set of essays in which Ford uses pseudo-science and third-rate sociology (as well as talk of conspiracy and "ancient prophecy") in an attempt to scientifically prove that "the Jew" is the biggest problem holding the world back. If something nice can be said about this book, it's that Ford is absolutely thorough in his accusations--perhaps an illustration of the kind of attention to detail that made him rise to such heights as a businessman. In his essays, he accuses the Jewish people of just about everything under the sun: fomenting Communism, gambling on baseball, making "Jewish Jazz" our national music, even conspiring with Benedict Arnold. Ford may have done as much as anyone in history to propel American industry into the future, but his anti-Semitic ramblings would have us stepping back into the Dark Ages.

Henry Ford (1863-1947) was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. Although Ford did not invent the automobile or the assembly line, he developed and manufactured the first automobile that many middle class Americans could afford. In doing so, Ford converted the automobile from an expensive curiosity into a practical conveyance that would profoundly impact the landscape of the twentieth century. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. As owner of the Ford Motor Company, he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with "Fordism": mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. His intense commitment to systematically lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put dealerships throughout most of North America and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation and arranged for his family to control the company permanently.

This is a highly credible and extrememly knowledgeable figurehead of American society. His vast knowledge and extensive research on the topic of Jewry in America is way beyond it's time. Very few people today, no matter what their social standing, will touch this topic due to slanderous backlashes by the "establishment" and fear of being labeled an "anti-semite". This gentleman spoke out of this threat to the American way of life without fear of persecution and, I believe, deserves to be heard. Anyone who does not take the time to consider the possibilities outlined in this book should stop to ask him/herself one question," How patriotic am I and will I investigate every avenue of what is going wrong in our government and our society in order to be fully versed in order to take action?" If you love your country and would like to know of one of the biggest threats to our moral and spiritual doctrines, this book is invaluable.

Just look around you. Everything predicted by Henry Ford in this book, has already happened. Controlling the world by having the financial power is what's happening right now. Too bad nobody knows about this book.
