Synopses & Reviews
The publication date of this paperback edition of Burleigh's one-volume history of the Third Reich has been brought forward as a result of its award of the Samual Johnson Prize for non-fiction 2001. Available 6th July.
Burleigh sets Nazi Germany in a European context showing how the Third Reich's abandonment of liberal democracy, decency and tolerance was widespread. The underlying premise of his book is that there are good and bad individuals, not good and bad nations, as he recreates the complexities of life under a totalitarian dictatorship.
