2019 marked the centennial of Henry Ford’s popular Anti-Semitic newspaper, The Dearborn Independent. Despite the newspaper's international reach and considerable backing, the Jewish community ultimately prevailed against it, exerting back-channel, public, economic, and legal pressure to shut down the paper in 1927. Despite this victory, even in 2020, the Independent's articles are still published as The International Jew. This 4-volume set serves as inspiration to modern-day extremist groups. It routinely receives 5-star reviews on Amazon.com.
