Book Description

8 July 1999 0521595029 978-0521595025
An engaging range of period texts and theme books for AS and A Level history. The twelve years, from 1933 to 1945, when Adolf Hitler was dictator of Nazi Germany stand out as one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the twentieth century. In many books on this subject, the personality of Hitler is so dominant that significant political, social, economic and international developments often retreat into the background. In this book Frank McDonough explains the dramatic history of the Nazi period within a wider context. By isolating key problem areas within current historical debates and by including a selection of primary source documents.

Product Description

Review

"This solid and straightforward title, however, was designed primarily for the classroom. Professor McDonough provides a good overview of the Nazi era in Germany. In a sense, his work here is more functional than inspried; there are no surprises in its pages, and the author is certainly no historical revisionist. The educational uses for this volume are obvious. In addition, it provides a good overview for adults who want to become familiar with the most pivotal events of the modern era." Kliatt

"McDonough is neither strident nor sensationalistic. Almost neutral in tone, he simply allows the Nazis and their supporters to condemn themselves by their own actions and lets the results speak for themselves." Kliatt, Wellesley MA, Raymond L. Puffer, Ph.D.

"...McDonough has produced a clearly written and well-organized book that incorporates the findings of important recent scholarship." Teaching History

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Hitler did and how he did it. 28 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a fantastic read and once you start reading it you will not be able to put it down. I am studying Modern History at AS level and this book provides information on all aspects of the study. The Author of this book really provides an interesting look at Hitler's life and his views. This book includes Hitlers early life and how he developed his views and this is important because of the effect it had on millions of people. It develops into an interesting read about the conflicts in World War II. This book provides a view into pre-war Nazi Germany, the economy/social conditions and the fear or GLEISCHALSTUNG (Gestapo, SS and SA) that griped Germany and allowed the Nazi's to establish the dictatorship that they did and to rule as they did.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overview 22 Mar 2014
By Tara Crow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book as part of an undergrad class and it was very beneficial. It gave a nice, detailed overview of the period without being dull or dragging. Paired well with the lectures and allowed me to go back and reread the sections that I had a little more trouble understanding. Would recommend for anyone taking a class about WWII or Nazi Germany or any related subject. Also great for anyone interested in the subject that just need a refresher or an introduction to the topic.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Book for Undergrad Students 27 Jan 2013
By Matt Obenritter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Often times, academics (especially historians) have a tendency to over-complicate causal factors and confuse students with historiography debates. This book makes a great addendum for undergraduate students to better grasp the complex web of Nazi Germany. It is certainly not a textbook or a substitute thereof; however, it is an excellent synopsis that will quickly bring this era of German history into clearer focus for most students. It would likely also prove useful to most laymen seeking a 'quick and dirty' rundown over the Third Reich, especially given how short the book is.
