Allen's study of the rise and fall of Nazism in Germany chooses to concentrate on a single small town in Saxony, to see in detail "how a civilised democracy could be plunged into a nihilistic dictatorship". A work of "microhistory", this text is comparable perhaps with Montaillou in its readability.
