Product Description

Product Description

The Nazi regime was a regime of unparalleled destructiveness. Nazism presents both key texts from some of the most innovative and challenging of more recent studies and extracts from the older historiography of the origins, nature, impact, and legacy of the National Socialist regime. It suggests both the need to re-read and re-consider much forgotten or ignored texts from earlier generations of commentators and the possibility of considering afresh the structure, style of
rule, and consequences of National Socialism in the context provided by the end of the cold war. The texts connect the experiences of the Jewish and non-Jewish victims of Nazi aggression and genocide; links the fates of the victims with analysis of the perpetrators; and stresses the consequences of this
unprecedented collapse in civilised values for post war Germany and the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Academic Introduction 9 Jun 2004
By A Customer
This edited collection consists of over 100 short essays on different aspects of the National Socialist regime and its legacy. Many of the contributors are leading historians (Martin Broszat, Jeremy Noakes, Ian Kershaw etc) with which every student of modern history will be familier. Others are less well known scholars, their work translated into English for the first time.
The beauty of this collection is that you very quickly get an overview, not only of the Third Reich as a whole but of the continuing historiography. The extended introduction cleverly places Nazism in its historical context and outlines some of the major points of historical discussion.
This book is clearly aimed at academics and students of history, and others may find it a little heavy-going. For students of the Third Reich, however, it is an invaluable resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Historical Analysis over Nazi Germany 28 Dec 2013
By Matt Obenritter - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For those of you without the funds to purchase a broad range of books about the Third Reich and yet still interested in Nazi Germany, you'll find an answer to that problem with this book. Gregor has done an excellent job bringing together a large assembly of expert analysis from many of the leading scholars over the Third Reich. Also included in this work are writings from contemporary observers living in Germany during the Third Reich's reign, giving the reader a glimpse into the minds of people who either supported or disagreed (in varying degrees) with the Nazis. This book covers everything from: the basic disposition of National Socialism and its political emergence, the various manifestations of party organizations and their structure, Hitler and his preeminent place in the Reich, the marginalization and exclusion of the Jews, the societal significance of propaganda and the importance of belonging to the Volksgemeinschaft, the imperial expansionist policies and warfare, the monolithic police state and its mechanistic terror, and finally the downfall of the regime and the post-war ramifications on Germany.

Contained herein are short excerpts from an enormous collection of important historians like Ian Kershaw, Hans Mommsen, Richard Bessel, Karl-Dietrich Bracher, Martin Broszat, Claudia Koonz, Detlev Peukert, Michael Burleigh, Jane Caplan, Michael Geyer, and Wolfgang Benz (Just to name a few). Even the philosopher-historian, Hannah Arendt makes an appearance in this important book. If you only had one history book in your entire library on the Nazi regime, you could not do better than to own this comprehensive in-depth editorial masterpiece.
