The Plot

The Secret Story of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion
A novel by

In a work more disturbing than fiction, "the father of graphic novels" (The New York Times) Will Eisner examines the outrageous fabrication of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which purports to be the actual blueprint by Jewish leaders to take over the world. Hatched as an anti-Semitic plot by the tsar's secret police to deflect widespread criticism of the government, the Protocols, first published in 1905, succeeded beyond the propagandistic ambitions of its originators; the lie became an internationally accepted truth. Presenting a pageant of historical figures including Tsar Nicholas II, Henry Ford and Adolf Hitler, Eisner exposes the twisted history of the Protocols from nineteenth-century Russia to modern-day Ku Klux Klan members to Islamic fundamentalists. With an introduction by Umberto Eco, The Plot unravels one of the most devastating hoaxes of the twentieth century and its 2005 publication marks the centenary of the first publication of the Protocols. 500 signed and slip-cased copies of limited editions are also available.
