Product description

Volume 2 of this series of documents with commentary covers the domestic aspects of the regime between 1933 and 1939: the political stystem, the economy and society, propaganda and indoctrination, policies towards youth and women, the SS system of terror, antisemitism and popular attitudes towards the regime - consent, dissent and resistance. The documents in the four volumes of this series are drawn from a wide range of sources - official and party documents, memoirs, letters, diaries and newspapers - and are linked with a commentary. The combination of documents and commentary represents at the same time a textbook, a contribution to scholarship and a source book for students and historians.

By Roger J-C Sabourin 06 Dec 2013 5

This is the second in a four-volume presentation of original documents on Nazism: its theme is �?�?�?�¢â?¬�?State, Economy and Society, 1933-1945�?�?�?�¢â?¬�?.

Of particular interest to me were the sections in which the editors try to describe how the government of Nazi Germany worked (to whatever limited extent it can be said to have worked), the complex relationships between Party and State, and the role the common man was expected to play in the New Order.

Here again, the editors�?�?�?�¢â?¬â?¢ selection of documents is wide-ranging, and their own contributions (background, context, interpretation) are the perfect complement to the source material they provide.

As with the other volumes in this series, I cannot recommend this book too highly.
