Book News Annotation:

This revised and enlarged edition of the supplement published by the Journal of Modern History in December 1992, which presented essays from the March 1990 conference on resistance to National Socialism, contains three previously unpublished essays. Papers address the legacy of European resistance, and examine issues including German workers and the limits of resistance, Jewish child rescue, resistance in Austria, new archival evidence on the White Rose, and antifascist resistance after 1945. Includes b&w photos.

Synopsis:

"The history of resistance affords a powerful example of why the present should try to remember a more distant, early modern past" write Michael Geyer and John W. Boyer in their introduction to Resistance against the Third Reich. Addressing the legacy of European resistance, this volume examines the nature of political opposition to unjust rule, which is so often grounded in the bitter conflicts between church and state. This collection is a timely effort to link recent advances in European history with lingering questions concerning resistance against the Third Reich.

Contributors include Geoffrey Cocks, Werner G. Jeanrond, Tony Judt, Claudia Koonz, Hans Mommsen, and Frank Trommler.

About the Author

John W. Boyer is the Martin A. Ryerson Distinguished Service Professor of History at the University of Chicago, where he is also dean of the College since 1992.
