    This is a reprinting in book form of the anti-semetic periodical articles by Henry Ford from is newspaper the Dearborn Independent. It was prepared for the printer by the prominent anti-Semite conspiracy Theorist Gerald L.K. Smith. I couldn’t find any copies online. Does anyone have information about the book? Any information would be appreciated!
    P.S. I don’t agree with any of these books claims and in fact am a Jew myself.

      Catmanyoutube, 'Cool.' };-)

      That is to say, it's cool that you've found a piece of history, albeit not a nice piece of history, but history is history, and you know what Santayana said about that:


      Due to the fame of its publisher, Henry Ford Sr., The International Jew, a four-volume anti-Semitic work first published in the 1920s, has been a particularly powerful tool for haters trying to validate their hostile beliefs. Though Ford publicly apologized twice for publishing The International Jew, online anti-Semites continue to use his name to promote it.


      The Dearborn Publishing Company published The Dearborn Independent newspaper. At the peak of its popularity, the Dearborn, Michigan paper, owned by auto magnate Henry Ford Sr., boasted a circulation of 700,000. The Dearborn Independent first attacked Jews in its May 22, 1920 issue and continued to do so in 91 subsequent editions.

      Many of the paper’s anti-Semitic articles were reprinted by the Dearborn Publishing Company in four paper-bound volumes: The International Jew, the World’s Foremost Problem (November, 1920); Jewish Activities in the United States (April, 1921); Jewish Influences in American Life (November, 1921); and Aspects of Jewish Power in the United States (May, 1922). Collectively known as The International Jew: The World’s Foremost Problem, these volumes were later published in a variety of languages and disseminated widely in the United States and abroad.

      For decades, The International Jew has been in the public domain. It can be reprinted by anyone who wishes to do so. In the late 1950s, anti-Semite Gerald L.K. Smith edited and published an abridged version of The International Jew culled from the original Dearborn Independent articles. The complete text of Smith’s version now is easily found at many hate sites on the World Wide Web.

      Items like this are a good reminder that prejudice and bigotry are not acceptable in civilized societies.
    3. keramikos keramikos, 7 months ago
      kwqd, I agree, but at the risk of medicalizing hate, there's a reason why we have words like xenophobia. "Phobia" means not hate, but rather fear, and I suspect some people are more prone to irrational fear than others.

      We should take a deep breath, and try to defuse irrational fear.

      Thank you for the information keramikos!
    5. keramikos keramikos, 7 months ago
      Catmanyoutube, You're welcome. :-)

      I didn't find another copy exactly like yours, but then I didn't conduct an intensive search.

      An interesting (if difficult) book no doubt...would be fun to have a copy on my 'religious themed' bookshelf I suppose. <lol> Still, I can't quite bring myself to punch the <love it> button, agreeing completely with kwqd & keramikos...

      Another thing I should probably a loyal FoMoCo driver for most of my life, I was nonetheless unaware of this peculiarity in the Company history... <sigh><groan>
