Hitler's Second Book
"This is a book that should be read...by contemporary journalists, political observers, and all concerned people who have the stomach to recognize evil when they confront it. For one of the most frightening aspects of Hitler's book is not that he said what he said at the time, but that much of what he said can be found today in innumerable places....The diplomacy advocated by Hitler is no longer relevant, but his reason for it, his legitimization of his 'worldview,' is alive and kicking." Omer Bartov, The New Republic (read the entire New Republic review)
Synopses & Reviews
Hitler's followup to Mein Kampf was discovered in 1958 by historian Weinberg, who was going through German archives. The German manuscript is here translated, with commentary by Weinberg. Like Mein Kampf, it contains Hitler's views on the destiny of the German people and the future of Europe.
"[S]olid historical background on Hitler's thinking in the late 1920s, when his party was nothing more than a tiny, radical sect. Weinberg provides helpful notes and a very informative introduction." Publishers Weekly
?The second book is in many ways more important than Mein Kampf...Reading the second book is to gain an exceptional window into the mentality of a man who saw warfare as both natural and necessary, and whose economics was a rudimentary belief in the superiority of naked power.? The Guardian
?This new edition provides a smooth translation, a thoughtful preface, and extensive, useful scholarly annotations and notes.? Library Journal
This is the first complete and annotated edition of the book Hitler dictated just before his rise to power.
Provides details of Hitler's vision for a foreign policy based on continual aggression that would inevitably result in a confrontation with the United States, which he saw as a major stumbling block to his plans.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
