Product Description


The book clearly is directed at students rather than researchers and Gregor admits that it makes most sense when used in conjunction with one of the many collections of primary sources which are available. In these terms, Nazism serves a useful purpose. It provides multiple ideas about an important historical phenomenon in a cogent and accessible way. History, Martyn Housden, University of Bradford

Presents a wide range of source material which will serve well to evaluate this difficult era. Dr Tim Megarry, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Anthropology, University of Greenwich

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 9 Jun. 2004
Format: Paperback
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.

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.
