What happens when a man with a conscience takes the hype and taboo that surround the Holocaust seriously -- and then goes public with his doubts and questions? This is an examination of the inner and outer consequences for the author of his growing doubt about many of the Holocaust stories. As the book makes plain, the broken friendships, financial straits, and threat of personal harm that crop up throughout the book are no match for Smith's intellectual rigor and sense of obligation to inform others. Break His Bones reveals -- in Smith's affable but unsparing style -- many of the influences, some quite unexpected, that brought him to his work of publicising revisionism on campus and over the airwaves.
