Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

    What was life like under the Third Reich? What went on between parents and children?  What were the prevailing attitudes about sex, morality, religion? How did workers perceive the effects of the New Order in the workplace? What were the cultural currents—in art, music, science, education, drama, and on the radio?

    Professor Mosses extensive analysis of Nazi culture—groundbreaking upon its original publication in 1966—is now offered to readers of a new generation. Selections from newspapers, novellas, plays, and diaries as well as the public pronouncements of Nazi leaders, churchmen, and professors describe National Socialism in practice and explore what it meant for the average German.

    By recapturing the texture of culture and thought under the Third Reich, Mosses work still resonates today—as a document of everyday life in one of historys darkest eras and as a living memory that reminds us never to forget.

About the Author

George L. Mosse (1919-1999) was the John C. Bascom Professor of European History and the Weinstein-Bascom Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has long been recognized as one of the most creative and innovative historians of modern Europe during the second half of the nineteenth century. His research ranged from the Protestant Reformation and the seventeenth century to the political, social and cultural history of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Mosse revolutionized the study of Nazism and facism, and opened new dimensions in such diverse fields as nationalism, racism, historical memory and symbolism, the commemoration of mass death, German-Jewish history, and the history of sexuality and the body. No other Europeanist historian of the later twentieth century exhibited so broad a range of research and analysis.
