  • Hitler's Childrenby Gerhard Rempel

    The University of North Carolina Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Eighty-two percent of German boys and girls between the ages of ten and eighteen belonged to Hitlerjugend--Hitler Youth--or one of its affiliates by the time membership became fully compulsory in 1939. These adolescents were recognized by the SS, an exclusive cadre of Nazi zealots, as a source of future recruits to its own elite ranks, which were... more...

  • Germans to the Frontby David Clay Large

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    In Germans to the Front , David Large charts the path from Germany's total demilitarization immediately after World War II to the appearance of the Bundeswehr, the West German army, in 1956. The book is the first comprehensive study in English of West German rearmament during this critical period. Large's analysis of the complex interplay between... more...

  • The Nation as a Local Metaphorby Alon Confino

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    All nations make themselves up as they go along, but not all make themselves up in the same way. In this study, Alon Confino explores how Germans turned national and argues that they imagined the nation as an extension of their local place. In 1871, the work of political unification had been completed, but Germany remained a patchwork of regions... more...

  • German Social Democracy and the Rise of Nazismby Donna Harsch

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    German Social Democracy and the Rise of Nazism explores the failure of Germany's largest political party to stave off the Nazi threat to the Weimar republic. In 1928 members of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) were elected to the chancellorship and thousands of state and municipal offices. But despite the party's apparent strengths, in 1933 Social... more...

  • Social Life, Local Politics, and Nazismby Rudy J. Koshar

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 29.99

    Focusing on Marburg, a contentious university town where voters demonstrated strong electoral support for Adolf Hitler's National Socialist party, this imaginative study discusses the political role of small-town organizational life and painstakingly reconstructs the full range of Nazi sympathizers' cross-affiliations with local voluntary groups. more...

  • The Nazi Voterby Thomas Childers

    The University of North Carolina Press 2010; US$ 29.99

    The first study based on a large national sample of both urban and rural districts examines the Nazi constituency -- how it was formed, from which social groups, under what conditions, and with what promises. Using advanced statistical techniques to analyze each national election of the Weimar era, Childres offers a new and challenging interpretation... more...

  • The Descent of Darwinby Alfred Kelly

    The University of North Carolina Press 2012; US$ 24.99

    In Germany, more than anywhere else, Darwinism was a sensational success. Setting his analysis against the background of popular science, Kelly follows popular Darwinism as it permeated education, religion, politics, and social thought in Germany. He explains how the popularizers changed Darwin's thought in subtle ways and how these changes colored... more...

  • Germany's Transient Pastsby Rudy J. Koshar

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    Over the course of the twentieth century, Germans have venerated and maintained a variety of historical buildings--from medieval fortresses and cathedrals to urban districts and nineteenth-century working-class housing. But the practice of historic preservation has sometimes proven controversial, as different groups of Germans have sought to use historical... more...

  • The German Colonial Empireby Woodruff D. Smith

    The University of North Carolina Press 2012; US$ 29.99

    Although Germany's short-lived colonial empire (1884-1918) was neither large nor successful, it is historically significant. The establishment of German colonies and attempts to expand them affected international politics in a period of extreme tension. Smith focuses on the interaction between Germany's colonial empire and German politics and, by extension,... more...

  • Germany as a Culture of Remembranceby Alon Confino

    The University of North Carolina Press 2006; US$ 29.99

    An acknowledged authority on German history and memory, Alon Confino presents in this volume an original critique of the relations between nationhood, memory, and history, applied to the specific case of Germany. In ten essays (three never before published and one published only in German), Confino offers a distinct view of German nationhood in particular... more...
