Abstract

Examines the questions about the relationship between law and history, and the role of expert historian witnesses, raised by the Queen's Bench Division judgment in Irving v Penguin Books Ltd on whether the book "Denying the Holocaust" by Deborah Lipstadt defamed the historian David Irving by associating him with the Holocaust revisionist movement. Discusses how the court approached the assessment of Irving's historical methods and conclusions. Considers the significance of the case.
