Publisher Comments:

This exciting new Seminar Study provides a detailed analysis of the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. The book concentrates on Hitler¿s unique contribution to the development of the Nazi Party and explores the key developments of the Nazi Party before 1933. Beginning with an overview of the personality and early life of Hitler the book goes on to examine:
  • the birth of the Nazi Party and its early development
  • Nazi ideology
  • the organisation, propaganda and membership of the Nazi Party
  • the growth of electoral support for the Nazis
  • the reasons why Hitler came to power

The author takes issue with the conventional view of Hitler¿s rise to power and offers a fresh viewpoint which lays stress on the significant contribution and impact made on events by Hitler¿s charismatic leadership and the effective propaganda and organisation of the Nazi Party.

Also containing primary documents, a chronology of key events, glossary of key terms and a Who¿s Who of leading figures, Hitler and The Rise of the Nazi Party provides students with a concise and stimulating introduction to the subject which is underpinned by an analysis of the most recent historical research.

Frank McDonough is a Senior Lecturer in History at Liverpool John Moores University.
