This auction is for a NM condition copy of The Plot HC published by Norton in 2005.

Completing The Plot in the last month of his life, Will Eisner tackled what he regarded as his most powerful work. Deeply disturbed that the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purports to be the actual blueprint by Jewish leaders to take over the world, continued to be published and disseminated to millions of people around the globe, Eisner hoped that his own graphic account of this outrageous fabrication could reach a mass audience in a way that no academic work possibly could." "In presenting this history, Eisner takes the reader on a journey that begins in late nineteenth-century Paris, where an agent of the Russian secret police stumbles upon an old French philosophical work, which he plagiarizes, often word for word, creating a new document that seeks to implicate Jewish leaders and bankers in a plot to take over the world. Thus hatched as an antisemitic scheme to deflect widespread criticism of the tsar's repressive government, the Protocols was first published in Russia in 1905." Not even the venerable Times of London, which exposed the Protocols as a crude hoax in 1921, could put a stop to the publications, which soon sprang up in dozens of countries." "Presenting a pageant of historical figures that includes, among many others, Tsar Nicholas II, Adolf Hitler, and Henry Ford, Eisner powerfully depicts the rise of modern antisemitic thought as seen through the spread of the Protocols itself. Written during the height of the Dreyfus Affair, which bitterly divided turn-of-the-century France, the Protocols, as Eisner reveals, was quickly adopted by numerous racist organizations, parties, and religions, be it the Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, or Islamic fundamentalists.
