Overview

This is an illustrated edition of Hitler, a best-seller in the Profiles in Power series. Adolf Hitler has left a lasting mark on the twentieth century as the dictator of Germany and instigator of a genocidal war, culminating in the ruin of much of Europe and the globe. So why, of all the fanatics in Germany after the First World War, was it Hitler who found such a mass appeal? How did such an unimpressive figure some to take control of the machinery of a complex modern state? Why, contrary to all expectations, was his authority not curtailed by the traditional ruling classes and constitutional constraints? Ian Kershaw answers these questions, and more, to provide an interesting and lucid introduction to the character and exercise of Hitler's dictatorial power. This is valuable reading for anyone wanting a better understanding of the Hitler, Second World War , Germany and Europe in the twentieth century.

Editorial Reviews

Evan Burr Bukey
Mr. Kershaw's biography provides the most astute assessment of Hitler's bond with the German people yet written. -- Wall Street Journal
Booknews
Reprint of a 1991 work. Kershaw (modern history, U. of Sheffield, UK) discusses why, of all the fanatics in Germany after the First World War, was it Hitler who found such mass appeal? How did such an unimpressive figure come to take control of the machinery of a complex modern state? Why, contrary to all expectations, was his authority not curtailed by the traditional ruling classes and constitutional constraints? What did his personal role in the shaping of policy amount to? and was he personally making the key decisions, right to the very end? Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
