Investigation led by Julia Neuberger finds Spanish edition of How They Rule the World has ‘echoes of Jewish conspiracy theories’.

A section about the Rothschild banking dynasty was omitted from the English-language version of Pedro Baños’s book.
▼ Penguin Random Househas stopped short of demands to withdraw Pedro Baños’s How They Rule the World from sale, but will print no further copies of the book after an external review found the Spanish-language edition contains “echoes of Jewish conspiracy theories”.
The publisher initially rejected  allegations of antisemitism in the book, which claims to reveal “the 22 secret strategies of global power”. But after continued pressure from organisations including the Campaign Against Antisemitism, which called for the book’s  withdrawal,Penguin commissioned an external review, led by Julia Neuberger, which yesterday announced its results.
Imprint Ebury is therefore printing no more copies of the English-language edition and has frozen stock, sending no further copies out to retailers. Three thousand copies are believed to have been printed, with around 500 copies sold to date. Rights to translation revert to the Spanish publisher.
The allegations of antisemitism first arose when the author Jeremy Duns questioned why passages from the Spanish language edition of How They Rule the World had been omitted from the English translation. Duns discovered that a section tackling the Rothschild banking dynasty, who are often subject to antisemitic conspiracy theories, did not appear in the English version, and accused Penguin of having knowingly published “a Spanish antisemitic conspiracy theorist … because to cover it up they’ve removed passages about the Rothschilds”.
