Christopher Browning, an emeritus professor of history at the University of North Carolina and previously a member of the History Department at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, ranks among the most honored and respected of all Holocaust historians. He has authored more than a dozen books on the Holocaust, and several are classics. Widely known and admired for Ordinary Men, his study of an SS police battalion that was responsible for the killing or deportation of about 70,000 Polish Jews during 1942-43, he has also written extensively on the evolution of the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe, his book, The Origins of the Final Solution: The Evolution of Nazi Jewish Policy, September 1939-March 1942 being perhaps the best known and most cited studies of this crucial issue.
