Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book which presents the so called Hitler-Library. It sheds new lights on the readings of Hitler and on his technics how to read a book. He played the role of the ideal reader of Schoppenhauer, nevertheless his remarks destroy the image of the contemporary Hitler-cult, mainly if we see how he read Ernst Junger, Richard Wagner, or Paul de Lagarde, and how he re-read his Mein Kampf. Hitler is presented in this book as a reader and it verifies the explication of his personality (Hitler as follower of Wagner, Hitler as philosopher, Hitler as crazy, Hitler as clever politician, Hitler as hero): it gives the picture of a half-educated gangster. As a kind of explication of the success of the nazism and that of the Hitler myth, the book tries to show the gnostic character of the phenomenon. This is a warning to the static views of the traditional historiography.

Book News Annotation:

In this English translation of the 2000 Hungarian edition, Miskolczy (cultural history, Eotvos Lorand U., Budapest) analyzes Hitler's reading habits, notations in books, and artistic tastes to trace influences on Nazi ideology and Mein kampf. Others' interpretations are discussed. Lacks a subject index. Distributed by Books International.
