Overview


This unique collection brings together extracts from the most innovative and stimulating studies of Nazism, including many forgotten or ignored older works. Nazism looks afresh at the structure, style of rule, and consequences of National Socialism and explores how successive generations of commentators and historians have sought to explain and understand the origins, nature, impact, and legacy of this regime of unprecedented destructiveness. With introductions to each section, to the authors, and a general introduction to the text, Neil Gregor presents a comprehensive coverage of the history and politics of this dramatic political movement.
