  • Weimar and Nazi Germanyby Panikos Panayi

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    Weimar and Nazi Germany presents the history of the country in these periods in a unique way.

  • Post-War Lies: Germany and Hitler's long shadowby Malte Herwig; Jamie Lee Searle; Shaun Whiteside

    Scribe Publications 2014;

    A German bestseller Post-War Lies is a superb portrait of a torn generation: the Nazi Party?s youngest members, those born between 1919 and 1927, who were raised on an ideological diet of racism and militarism. A number of them ? from prominent politician Hans-Dietrich Genscher to writer Martin Walser ? were later to become leading public figures... more...

  • The Formation of the Nazi Constituency 1919-1933 (RLE Nazi Germany & Holocaust)by Thomas Childers

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    In the years preceding publication of this book in 1986 much progress was made in identifying the social sources of support for Hitler?s NSDAP and in determining the tactics employed by the party to mobilise its constituency at grass roots level. It has emerged that the Nazi?s roots were far more diverse than previously assumed, extending beyond the... more...

  • »Freiheit heißt, die Angst verlieren«by Christian Halbrock

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 34.87

    An der Ostsee wurde in der DDR nicht nur Urlaub gemacht. Hier befanden sich die wichtigsten Werften und Häfen.

  • Born in the GDRby Hester Vaizey

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    The changes that followed the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 were particularly dramatic for East Germans. With the German Democratic Republic effectively taken over by West Germany in the reunification process, nothing in their lives was immune from change and upheaval: from the way they voted, the newspapers they read, to the brand of butter... more...
