Description

The Nazi regime was a regime of unparalleled destructiveness. Nazism presents both key texts from some of the most innovative and challenging of more recent studies and extracts from the older historiography of the origins, nature, impact, and legacy of the National Socialist regime. It suggests both the need to re-read and re-consider much forgotten or ignored texts from earlier generations of commentators and the possibility of considering afresh the structure, style of rule, and consequences of National Socialism in the context provided by the end of the cold war. The texts connect the experiences of the Jewish and non-Jewish victims of Nazi aggression and genocide; links the fates of the victims with analysis of the perpetrators; and stresses the consequences of this unprecedented collapse in civilised values for post war Germany and the world.show more

Review quote

Presents a wide range of source material which will serve well to evaluate this difficult era. Dr Tim Megarry, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Anthropology, University of Greenwich The book clearly is directed at students rather than researchers and Gregor admits that it makes most sense when used in conjunction with one of the many collections of primary sources which are available. In these terms, Nazism serves a useful purpose. It provides multiple ideas about an important historical phenomenon in a cogent and accessible way. History, Martyn Housden, University of Bradfordshow more
