Overview

“A truly revolutionary idea…. Clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned.” —Ayn Rand
 
Self-sacrifice, Oriental mysticism, racial “truth,” the public good, doing one’s duty—these are among the seductive catchphrases that circulated in pre-Nazi Germany. Objectivist author and philosopher Leonard Peikoff was Ayn Rand’s long-time associate. In The Cause of Hitler’s Germany—previously published in The Ominous Parallels—Peikoff demonstrates how unreason and collectivism led the seemingly civilized German society to become a Nazi regime.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Praise for The Ominous Parallels:

“[The Cause of Hitler’s Germany] offers a truly revolutionary idea…The book is clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned. Its style is clear and hard as crystal––and as sparkling…As to my personal reaction, I can express it best by paraphrasing a line from Atlas Shrugged: ‘It’s so wonderful to see a great, new, crucial achievement which is not mine!’” ––Ayn Rand
 
“Extraordinarily perceptive…frightening insights…Everyone concerned with the collectivist trend in today’s world should read this book.” ––Alan Greenspan
 
“A fascinating weave of German history, philosophic determinism, and Objectivist polemic.”
––Chicago Tribune
