The book also documents the controversy within the Zionist movement and the Jewish diaspora over the deal showing Black “that tore the Jewish world apart before World War II.” In particular, it describes the conflict between German Zionists and local German leaders in the United States who argued in favor of the deal and, on the other hand, Eastern European Jewish-American Zionist leaders (such as the American Jewish Committee and Jewish War Veterans) who opposed the deal and instead advocated for a total boycott of Nazi Germany.

Denis Brian talked about his book The Chosen and the Chosen: Why American Presidents Have Supported Jews and Israel. The book has been criticized on several fronts. Historian Richard S. Levy wrote in Commentary that he “relies on obsolete secondary works, makes many mistakes, and distorts his subject matter” and that “Black`s neglect of secondary scientific literature is perverse and leads him to his most serious miscalculation—a drastic overestimation of the political and economic effectiveness of the boycott weapon.”. describing the book as a “conspiracy theory, allusions and sensations”.

 The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine is a book by author Edwin Black that documents the Haavara Agreement between Zionist organizations and Nazi Germany to transfer a number of Jews and their property to Palestine. Shortly after Samuel Untermyer`s return from Germany to the United States in 1933, front-page articles appeared on the front pages of newspapers in London and New York claiming that “Judea declares war on Germany.” This led to an effective boycott of German products in many countries, which severely affected German exports. The agreement was partly inspired by this boycott that seemed to threaten the Empire.  Contested, as can be seen a posteriori, it marked one of the few rescues of the Jews and their fortunes in the years leading up to the Holocaust.
