This is a competent guide for new students of Heidegger, though it is necessarily crude to have to simplify and reorganize his thinking. The chapter death, time, and history is probably the most helpful, for it is some of Heidegger's most challenging material. Also included are essays on Heidegger's thoughts on psychotherapy, ecology, Buddhism, and technology. Although the essay on Heidegger's politics is fairly amateurish. An average text on the whole.
Pg 87 has the quote which contradicts the claims made even at en.wikipedia.com as of 2010/04/21 that no such letter referring to the "Verjudung" has been found.
The letter was referenced by Jaspers in his letter to Heidegger - as a letter which Jaspers had himself read.
This is valuable in that a great amount of energy is wasted on whether Heidegger was a Nazi or an anti-semite - as if clearing him of those charges would remove hos extreme language-based ethno-mania for the German Volk and ther German language.
In his lectures and essays he constantly referred to "heute" - today - where we Germans find ourselves today - he was through-and-through political in a very primitive sense: he was never active in a "polis" but had a visionary faith that the German Volk would rise again.
Where he was a racist was in connection with all things slavic - asiatic -- which did not extend to the Japanese (he lamented not having accepted a lucrative post in Tokyo).
It his necessary to grasp his utter lack of moral character - which he constantly affirms in writing as his preference for "ethos" over liberal values, laws, treaties and constitutions.
Pg 87 has done service in providing the quote; the letter in full is in print.
