Professor Hans Mommsen, one of the world's leading experts on the history of the Third Reich, has gathered together a group of historians who are engaged in pioneering research into national socialism. This book covers such topics as the Viennese background to Hitler's career; the development of fascist tendencies amongst the German population during the Weimar period; the nature of popular support for national socialism; the myth of the Nazi economic boom and the ideological concepts and political developments which culminated in the mass murder of European Jews. It makes accessible to a wider public controversial arguments which have resulted from recent reassessments of Hitler's movement and his Nazi regime.

'This is a superb work, one that all students of German history will cite for years to come.' Choice '[The papers'] quality is uniformly high and, read together, they offer a valuable set of reflections on the relationship between the Third Reich's visionary propoganda and its violent, destructive reality.' History 'A worthwhile study that provides an interesting glimpse into the German perspective on the rise of the Third Reich...' German Studies Review
