5.0 out of 5 stars mein kampf - illustrated 28 Mar 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Mein Kampf - The 1939 Illustrated Edition Being a collector of copies of MEIN KAMPF ... in any language, i eagerly awaited this new edition which i purchased on AMAZON i was not to be disappointed! the quality is superb and at this bargain price this example is a must have!
i was a little worried that the new introduction by bob carruthers was going to be an endless and unnecessary anti monologue with countless pages of needless facts some real and some imagined! ... as with the MANHEIM translation!!!
the JAMES MURPHY translation with introduction is the only authentic version of mein kampf that was authorized by the N.S.D.A.P.
if you are looking to purchase an original true translation of this work and cannot afford the 1939 editions which seem to be commanding high prices lately, .. your search is over .. buy this book ... you will not regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent edition 2 Nov 2010
By EarlR
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent edition of Mein Kampf.

If you are not familiar with the book then here is a quick history.
Originally it was published in German, in Germany. English speakers wanted to read it so an abridged version was translated by a man named Dougdale. That edition was shortened and not well received. A man named Murphy translated the Official Nazi Edition which is also available today, however it has some errors and is shorter than the original German. Then in the USA Manheim translated a new english version in 1943 I think. That version was poorly translated and also had many errors plus parts were missing and some parts were left untranslated. So you see that in the past there were no good choices for the English speaker who wanted to read Mein Kampf...until now.

This new edition is easier to read, it has historical notes in the text, and it is more accurate than the other translations. It is by the same company that produced "Mein Kampf: A translation controversy". Another great book that I recommend which lists errors in the older editions and it has a historical explanation of Mein Kampf which will help you understand it better. This book is based on that book which shows clearly that this book is well researched and more accurate than past translations.

Get this edition if you want to truly understand Hitler's words. If you want to struggle through poorly written copy, read censored versions, or confusing editions, then get Manheim or Murphy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading, poor publication 5 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
A good political read, very interesting to hear Hitler's rationale contemporaneously. Two things bother me about this book. The edition itself is not the best edited, a few spelling mistakes here and there, frequent enough to be noticable. Second,the back of the book, which sells Hitler as an "evil genius" or "monster". Mein Kampf has its own merits and logic. It is counter-productive to dismiss the book as worthless. Hitler was not a monster, he was a human, and reading this book helps you understand how people are able to act like monsters. Censorship of literature is a hallmark of fascist states, and I think its a shame that there is in some quarters consent that the content of the book is worthless, or that only a Hitler sympathiser would read it. It is as worthwhile as any book written by a political leader would be. Interesting to me was how Hitler provides commentary on his own assumptions. For example, before launching into a tirade against democracy he describes how he came to admire democracy, and how then he came to hate it. He is self-aware of his own motives. I was shocked to hear him admit to being "uncomfortable" with anti-Semitism, being rather liberal at first (he thought Jews were discriminated against for their faith, which he considered intolerant). Then he describes how he came to hate the Jews himself. This also belies the sometimes voiced defence that there was no anti-Semitism in Austria/Germany pre-Nazis. It is interesting to see in his more obviously political statements how he blames Jews for many problems, an obvious form of propaganda. Very obvious in fact, because he describes the power of propaganda in detail. I found this a fascinating read.

Recommended to anyone who has an interest in history, politics, and sociology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading in history education 17 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a historical document which should be read by anyone with an interest in the European history of 1900'edrs. It is fascinating to learn how detailed Hitler had planed his policies and future actions at such an early stage, how he developed the views he had, and how he spread them so quickly. Some passages are a bit heavy to get through, but in others he expresses views about the mentality of the masses, the workings of propaganda, and even on how history education should take place, which apply perfectly well today, almost 100 years later.

Format:Paperback
'Mein Kampf' or 'My Struggle', which would be the correct title in English, was dictated (not written) by Hitler while imprisoned in Landsberg prison to someone who compiled it as a book on his behalf, hence the lengthy, complex sentences and tedious, rhetorical style of the whole book. It's less a description of Hitler's beliefs than an inspirational piece of propaganda, designed to rally his supporters and outline a rough vision of his political aims to his followers. He emphasizes many of the grievances felt by most Germans after the Treaty of Versailles and states the need to forge an alliance with Mussolini, even if that means sacrificing the German speaking South Tyrol. He also outlines his aims for Lebensraum (living space) in the East and the inevitability of a clash with the Bolshevik USSR. Then, of course, is the usual ranting against the Jews and their perceived economic dominance in Germany and globally. Given that this book was exclusively written for an audience of loyal followers there is little that is surprising, other than perhaps evidence of Hitler's remarkable consistency of views from the 1920s until his death in 1945. However, if you are looking for a greater insight into Hitler's personality and innermost thoughts, I would suggest reading Hitler's Table Talk by Hugh Trevor-Roper, which details conversations Hitler had with his inner circle that were secretly recorded for posterity. This is far more revealing about Hitler's personality and overall vision of the world, which was far more complex and interesting than one would normally assume.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Bad Book
Purely on style and readability, this work in no way justified its publication. I shall not comment on its themes; everyone knows what they are and what they led to.
