Product description

Hitler's infamous political tract was first published in two volumes in 1925-26 and sold between eight and nine million copies during his lifetime, as well as being widely translated. This edition contains a detailed introduction by D.C. Watt, Professor of International History at the University of London, which analyzes Hitler's background, gives the origins and history of the book, and ends with a critical assessment both of Hitler's incoherent ideas and his ruthless understanding of political power.

Editorial reviews

This is the big sensation of the month, and all eyes are on the legal battle over the two editions. It is not within our province to pass judgment on the case. We simply wish to announce the distinguishing features of the two books, both complete, unabridged editions of the most discussed book in the world today. Reynal & Hitchcock, in conjunction with Houghton, Mifflin, are issuing their translation by Dr. Alvin Johnson, with careful annotations by eminent scholars and publicists. The details are laid forth in the February 4th P.W., including the publishers' statement in regard to the matter of royalties to Germany and profits to the refugees. The promotion plans are also outlined, and the advance sale indicates that it will be possible to back the publication with a tremendous nation-wide advertising campaign. Publication set for early March. Price $3.00 .... Suit has been brought against Stackpole and due warning issued by Houghton, Mifflin. The fact that no royalties are being paid to Hitler has resulted in a big advance on this Stackpole edition, a translation by Barrows Mussey. (Kirkus Reviews)
