The Politics of Genocide: The Holocaust in Hungary, Condensed Edition is an abbreviated version of the classic work first published in 1981 and revised and expanded in 1994. It includes a new historical overview, and retains and sharpens its focus on the persecution of the Jews. Through a meticulous use of Hungarian and many other sources, the book explains in a rational and empirical context the historical, political, communal, and socioeconomic factors that contributed to the unfolding of this tragedy at a time when the leaders of the world, including the national and Jewish leaders of Hungary, were already familiar with the secrets of Auschwitz.

The Politics of Genocide is the most eloquent and comprehensive study ever produced of the Holocaust in Hungary. In this condensed edition, Randolph L. Braham includes the most important revisions of the 1994 second edition as well as new material published since then. Scholars of Holocaust, Slavic, and East-Central European studies will find this volume indispensable.

Google search brought this book up as a single answer to a search question put to it by myself:" Weiss Manfred Iparcsoport". "Iparcsoport" is the magyar word, made up of two words joined together for Industrial Group. Mr Manfred Weiss is a person well known in Hungary/Magyarorsza's on account of a large industrial conglomerate situated in the territory of the Thousand Years Old Kingdom of Hungary, in the Carpathian Basin, with the Danube River, the Tisza River, the Raba River, and the Szava River being the major waterways, the entire basin drained by the Danube River, flowing from the Black Forest into the Black Sea - where the peninsula around the city of Yalta is currently - as of Tuesday, 16th Day of June MMXV - 2015 A.D. - disputed between Russia and the Ukraine. Yalta is well known for having hosted one of the two major post 'Second' World War conferences where the fifty year division of Europe along the Trieste/Sceczin line was decided, which resulted in the erection of the Berlin Wall - a wall around West Berlin - and the division of Germany as foreseen and threatened by Sir Winston Churchill amongst others in books published after the so called 'First' World War, in which the killing by hand guns of the ArchDuke Francz Ferdinand and His Wife, heirs to the Throne of the Austro Hungarian Monarchy of Sixty Million People of more than fifteen nationalities, led to a world wide armed conflagration with a very large loss of human life and resources. These two World Wars - which now look like one long World War - 1914-1944 - the second Thirty Years War in Europe and Globally - resulted in the Jewish People regaining their ancient lands around Jerusalem, and the setting up of New Israel.
A quick overview of the book: The Politics of Genocide: The Holocaust in Hungary, published in Detroit, Michigan - part of New France, under Governor Le Duc De Cadillac - using the British and American version of the English language, itself a mixture of the low-German and Latinised French languages - looks to a Hungarian/Magyar reader, who grew up in Budapest between 1951 A.D. and 1977 A.D. - like a factually based description of events, with real people and places. The reason for my search of the Weiss Manfred Iparcsoport is that I would like to find out, in connection with the two recent Saab Gripen Fighter Aeroplane Accidents of the new Hungarian (KuK - Kira'lyi und Koezta'rsasaagi) Airforce, both of which took place with Magyarorsza's being a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance. I wanted to find out if the Weiss Manfred Iparcsoport was manufacturing Messersmidt Fighter Aeroplanes at Csepel Island at any time in the 1914-1944, thirty year period, under the Regency of the Horthy Family Governing the Kingdom/Country of Hungary and the Magyar and other people living there - including a very large number of Israelites - who formed a plan of sorts to re-gain their ancient lands near Jerusalem. The Fortified Walled Trading City of Jerusalem was sacked by Roman Imperial troops around two thousand years ago - at around the birth and death of Jesus Christ, whom the Christians of planet earth believe has been elevated as part of the Trinity - Father - Son and the Holy Spirit. The Israelites believe in an eternal re-newable covenant between the one and only God, and the different tribes of Israel. The Nordic Tribes, including many Vikings have for a long time been visiting by rowing and sailing ships the vulcanic islands that lie between northern Europe and Northern America, and have for long landed on the continent of what is now North America and Canada. However, the European and African settlement of Northern America received a major push when Christianity in Europe, around five hundred years ago had suffered major defeats from the Mohamedan Ottoman Turks. When the Empire of China sent a very large sailing fleet to the west, getting around the Indian Subcontinent to reach what is now the war torn middle east, the knowledge becoming less hidden that the Earth might be round and

It is really in depth in what happened in the ghettos. So if your looking for information on the ghettos go here. Also it is in depth in how they were treated in the ghettos too.
