A defining work in the "Inner Emigration" literary movement, Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen's "History of the Munster Anabaptists" was written in 1937 as a criticism of the Nazi regime. This English translation includes documents, scholarly essays, and a detailed introduction.

"This book provides an imporant point of access to the phenomenon of Inner Emigration in Germany during the Third Reich. The vivid parallels between Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen's 1937 account of the Munster Anabaptist uprising in 1534 and Hitler's Third Reich in Germany make this intriguing work a fascinating document of opposition to the Nazi regime."

- Neil H. Donahue, Professor of German and Comparative Literature, Hofstra University
