In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of war and genocide, not from a traditional military history perspective, but within the framework of social and cultural history. This series offers a forum for scholarly works that reflect these new approaches. The persecution and mass-murder of the Jews during World War II would not have been possible without the modern organization of division of labor. Moreover, the perpetrators were dependent on human and organizational resources they could not always control by hierarchy and coercion. Instead, the persecution of the Jews was based, to a large extent, on a web of inter organizational relations encompassing a broad variety of non-hierarchical cooperation as well as rivalry and competition. Based on newly accessible government and corporate archives, this volume combines fresh evidence with an interpretation of the governance of persecution, presented by prominent historians and social scientists.

"The Berghahn series Studies on War and Genocide, in which this collection appears, has immeasurably enriched the English language scholarship available to scholars and students of genocide and, in particular, the Holocaust. This particular collection is no exception, and is another excellent, if contentious, addition to and summary of contemporary Holocaust scholarship.This is then a valuable collection that confirms some of the accepted ideas of Holocaust historiography, while also revising others. It will give access for the first time to many students and scholars to some perspectives not previously available in the English language. The diversity of those perspectives is testament to the vigour of contemporary Holocaust scholarship."--Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions.
