Hitler's rise to power and his subsequent influence on world history remains a subject of fierce debate. This book focuses on the particular problems associated with the Nazi period. How did the weaknesses of the Weimar Republic contribute to Hitler's rise to power? What was the initial appeal of Nazism and how far was its growing popularity induced by the economic crisis of 1929-33? What was the nature of the Nazi regime and where did responsibility lie for the anti-Semitic policies it pursued? What role did Hitler play in bringing about the Second World War? How great was the support for and the opposition to Hitler?
