Product Description


'Meticulously, stylishly, and with great skill, Burleigh describes the growing links with state authorities, and with the SS, even before the outbreak of the war and German expansion brought about the 'hour of the experts'. Michael Burleigh's excellent study is a chilling account of scholarship working in the interest of inhumane, repulsive political precepts.' Ian Kershaw; 'A major contribution to our knowledge of ordinary life in Nazi Germany through its exposure of the ready collaboration of a section of the no-so-muddled majority, the academic profession' History Today; 'Michael Burleigh's case against German experts on the East is brilliantly provocative and robust' Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

From the winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction 2001 and the author of the award-winning The Third Reich: A New History comes a brilliant analysis of German scholarship under the Nazis.

best researched history of third reich ever written and explains in detail what the ostforschung was all about: not only which peoples could be accepted as "germanic" but indicating what to do with the "others"

Turgid prose and a complete lack of translation of German terms makes for very heavy going. Not as good as I anticipated.

HASH(0x928e5b18) out of 5 stars Germany Turns Eastward 5 Jun. 2011
By Thomas J., Murphy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is full of historical doctrine leading to and including the invasion of the Eastern countries. It's difficult reading if you're not a history buff. The book lacks no details from a political stance of why Germany invaded its Eastern neighbors.

HASH(0x92b3b270) out of 5 stars Important yet not worth the time 22 July 2015
By Garry S. Sklar - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an important book. Yet it is poorly written and in many instances totally boring. It is a struggle to get through this book if you are not fluent in German as the author very frequently uses German quotations with no English translation. The personalities in the text are poorly described and in many instances, barely introduced, often only by their last name. There is no denying the importance of this subject matter. Unfortunately, it borders on the unreadable. A magazine article ten pages long would have covered the subject as adequately as this book does.
