Overview

This impressive collection brings together some of the most influential recent writing on Nazi Germany. It covers all central aspects of the period, from the rise of the Nazis and the internal organization of the regime, to Germany's role in the Second World War.

The pieces incorporate discussion of social and economic change, the personality of Hitler, an most controversially, continuing debates about German public opinion and the Holocaust. A key feature is the inclusion of three seminal articles translated into English here for the first time. The volume begins with a substantial editorial introduction to current issues and each essay is prefaced with a headnote, setting it in its historiographical context.
