Emory International Law Review


In 1960, the Israeli government abducted key Holocaust organizer Adolf Eichmann from Argentina and put him on trial in Jerusalem the following year. On the proceeding's fiftieth anniversary, renowned Holocaust historian Deborah Lipstadt's The Eichmann Trial offers a timely update to the only other book to focus primarily on the trial itself--Hannah Arendt's controversial Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil. As its famous subtitle suggests, Arendt's book has more of a philosophical, as opposed to a legal, focus.
