Editorial Reviews

Journal of Social History
Remarkable for Bukey's ability to distinguish between subtle variations in popular attitudes and his successful attempt to identify ambiguous feelings, uncertainty, and inconsistent, wavering or irresolute behavior among ordinary people.
Foreign Affairs
A thorough account of the Austrian embrace of Hitler and Nazism, with some interesting parallels to the present.
Historische Zeitschrift
A fair, conscientiously multifaceted though unsparingly frank picture of the Austrian people during the period of Nazi rule.
American Historical Review
Now our best study on Austria's embrace of Nazism.
Times Literary Supplement
[An] excellent new book. . . . Warmly recommended for those experts on Austria recruited since the arrival of Haider's Freedom Party in Vienna's corridors of power.

Library Journal
That many Austrians welcomed the Anschluss that made Austria into "Ostmark," an integral part of Hitler's Greater German Reich, is well-known to historians. More recently, controversy both inside and outside of Austria has raged over the extent and depth of Austrian anti-Semitism and complicity in Nazi atrocities, as well as the continuation of some of these strains into the post-Cold War era. In this book, Bukey (Hitler's Hometown: Linz, Austria, 1908-1945) offers an important contribution to the debate surrounding Austrians' acceptance of Nazism. Even-handed, thoroughly documented, clearly written, and utterly fascinating, the book deals with rural and urban populations, with individuals and social groupings, and with the enormous range of life-changing consequences of the German Anschluss. This is an important and thought-provoking book that should be in all European history collections.--Barbara L. Walden, Univ. of Wisconsin, Madison Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
