A fair biography of whom???!
If you worked in a bookstore, what would you say to someone who asked you for a 'fair' biography of Hitler? Would you throw them out the door? would you be unable to speak, your jaw on the floor? or would you show them what was in stock?
It's a question addressed in a wonderful blog post over at stevereads - and my guess is it should have many academics squirming.
This is all à propos of a review in the latest TLS on Pope Piux III. You know, Hitler's favourite Pope.
