5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive depiction of everyday hatred, 12 Jan 2003
This review is from: The Racial State: Germany 1933-1945 (Burleigh) (Paperback)
Burleigh and Wippermann describe in heart-rending detail the Nazis' project to biologically transform Germany and all nations that might eventually fall under its sway. The Nazis' attention to detail in their bizarre attempts to re-structure humanity is as insane as one might have expected, and one is struck by the wide acceptance these ideas received among both scientific communities and the public at large.
Although the book focuses on the Germans, it should not be forgotten that their warped views of eugenics and the 'health' of nations were common all over the world at the time, nor that they had thousands of willing helpers from other countries in their murderous endeavours. This book shows the dangers of blind faith in immoral science as much as the same uncritical belief in 'great' leaders. Essential reading for anyone trying to understand the modern world.
