»Es ist viel 'Hitler' in Wagner«

Rassismus und antisemitische Deutschtumsideologie in den "Bayreuther Blättern" (1878--1938). Mit einem Verfasser- und Schlagwortregister

The »Bayreuther Blätter« periodical was founded by Richard Wagner in 1878. In the 61 years of its existence, it was the central literary vehicle of the cultural movement emanating from Bayreuth and as such represents a major source of information on mentalities prevalent in Germany in the late 19th and early 20th century. The study traces the origins and foundation of the publication and discusses its scope, design, conception, the audience it addressed itself to, and the contributors who wrote for it. A central focus is the discussion of the ideological role played by the periodical in connection with anti-Semitism, racism and Teutonicism. In addition, an alphabetic index of authors and a systematic index of key-words make the volume into a detailed work of reference on the »Bayreuther Blätter« and a valuable bibliographic resource.
