Free Advance Reader Copies of Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning by Timothy Snyder Now Available

9781101903452In this deeply researched and profoundly original book, Yale University history professor and historian Timothy Snyder has written a history of extermination and survival, an explanation of an unprecedented crime of the twentieth century that might serve as a precedent in the twenty-first. It tells the story of the Holocaust based on an array of new archival sources from eastern Europe and the voices of Jewish survivors to present the mass murder of the Jews in comprehensible historical terms–and thus all the more terrifyingly.

Black Earth is scheduled to be released on September 8th, 2015. Please email rhacademic@penguinrandomhouse.com with your name, college and course information to request a complimentary advance reader copy.
