With "The Plot Against America", Roth enters the area alternate history with aviation hero Charles A. Lindbergh defeating Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 U. S. Presidential election. Not only had Lindbergh, in a nationwide radio address, publicly blamed the Jews for selfishly pushing America toward a pointless war with Nazi Germany, but upon taking office as the thirty-third president of the United States, he negotiated a cordial 'understanding' with Adolf Hitler, whose conquest of Europe and virulent anti-Semitic policies he appeared to accept without difficulty.

Still, the real story in this "what if" novel is that of Roth's own family, which the author gives to us as a genuinely American story; 8vo; [viii], 391, [1] pages; Signed by Author.
