Hitler and Nazi Germany: A History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Providing a clear, straightforward, and complete history-both thematic and chronological-of the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party, author Jackson J. Spielvogel places the emergence of Hitler and the Third Reich within the social, economic, and political contexts that made it all possible.

Topics examined are the cultural and social aspects of the Nazi regime, including sections on art and literature, family and population policy, and sex and morals. Also provided is an in-depth view of the Holocaust—anti-Semitism in Germany, Hitler's personal racial ideology and vision of Aryan purity, the mechanisms of terror and control, and the Jewish perspective on these events. New to the Fifth Edition:

  • Material on the political scene in Weimar Germany
  • Hitler's early life
  • The role of Gregor Strasser in rebuilding the Nazi Party
  • Material on Darre and "Blood and Soil"
  • The SS and the military between 1933 and 1939

Book News Annotation:

Surveys the Third Reich and emphasizes the crucial role Hitler played in its development, for general readers who want a deeper view of this period in German history. Analysis of Hitler's role is balanced with discussion of the economic, social, and political factors that made the rise of Nazism possible, and the institutional, cultural, and social life of the Third Reich. The Holocaust and WWII are approached as logical outcomes of the ideology of the Nazi movement, and are discussed both chronologically and thematically. Includes b&w historical photos, plus a glossary. New material and photos have been added for this fourth edition. Spielvogel is affiliated with The Pennsylvania State University.

Synopsis:

The book is a brief yet comprehensive survey of the institution, cultural, and social life of the Third Reich--and Hitler's role in it, the Second World War, and the Holocaust. Based on current research findings, it spans an era of economic, social, and political forces that made possible the rise and growth of Nazism. Coverage includes material on anti-Jewish policies and the involvement of ordinary Germans in the Holocaust, the social composition and membership of the Nazi party and its leaders, the mechanisms of terror and control, the machinery of the Final Solution, and the Jewish view of the Holocaust. An in-depth look at Adolf Hitler, the man and the leader, examines influences on his early development, character traits, oratorical skills, messianic pretensions, and provides an analysis of his ideology based on extensive quotations from his writings and speeches. For anyone trying to get more background into a panoramic view of 20th Century German history.
