  • Die SSby Bastian Hein

    C.H. Beck 2015; US$ 7.64

    Die SS ? untrennbar ist dieses Kürzel mit der Ermordung der europäischen Juden verbunden, dem wohl größten Menschheitsverbrechen aller Zeiten. Überall auf der Welt stehen die beiden Buchstaben als Synonym für das Böse schlechthin. Doch wie genau wurde der ?Schwarze Orden? zum Vollstrecker des nationalsozialistischen Rassenwahns? Auf dem neuesten Stand... more...

  • Tailoring Truthby Jon Berndt Olsen

    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 95.00

    By looking at state-sponsored memory projects, such as memorials, commemorations, and historical museums, this book reveals that the East German communist regime obsessively monitored and attempted to control public representations of the past to legitimize its rule. It demonstrates that the regime's approach to memory politics was not stagnant,... more...

  • Helmut Kohl's Quest for Normalityby Christian Wicke

    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 110.00

    During his political career, Helmut Kohl used his own life story to promote a normalization of German nationalism and to overcome the stigma of the Nazi period. In the context of the cold war and the memory of the fascist past, he was able to exploit the combination of his religious, generational, regional, and educational (he has a PhD in History)... more...

    Now for the first time, the complete expose of the most daring and successful forgery of all time.

  • Foundations of the Nazi Police Stateby George C. Browder

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    The abbreviation "Nazi," the acronym "Gestapo," and the initials "SS" have become resonant elements of our vocabulary. Less known is "SD," and hardly anyone recognizes the combination "Sipo and SD." Although Sipo and SD formed the heart of the National Socialist police state, the phrase carries none of the ominous impact that it should. Although... more...

  • Goebbels And Der Angriffby Russel Lemmons

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    The Berlin newspaper Der Angriff ( The Attack ), founded by Joseph Goebbels in 1927, was a significant instrument for arousing support for Nazi ideas. Berlin was the center of the political life of the Weimar Republic, and Goebbels became an actor upon this frenetic stage in 1926, becoming Gauleiter of Berlin's Nazis. Focusing on the period from... more...

  • The SA Generals and the Rise of Nazismby Bruce Campbell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

Bruce Campbell offers the first in-depth study in English of the men who held the three highest ranks in the SA. Organized on military lines and fired by radical nationalism, the Brown Shirts saw themselves as Germany's paramilitary... more...

  • The Weimar Centuryby Udi Greenberg

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 35.00

    The Weimar Century reveals the origins of two dramatic events: Germany?s post?World War II transformation from a racist dictatorship to a liberal democracy, and the ideological genesis of the Cold War.

  • Preußenby Konrad Theiss

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2015; US$ 30.59

    Glanz, Gloria und GehorsamDie Geschichte Preußens ist eine Geschichte voller Widersprüche.
