    Random House 2015; US$ 16.91

    WINNER OF THE 2016 PEN HESSELL-TILTMAN PRIZE The Second World War was a German war like no other. The Nazi regime, having started the conflict, turned it into the most horrific war in European history, resorting to genocidal methods well before building the first gas chambers. Over its course, the Third Reich expended and exhausted all its moral... more...

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    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 US$ 25.49

    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 US$ 21.24

    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...

  • The German Colonial Empireby Woodruff D. Smith

    The University of North Carolina Press 2012; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    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's Transient Pastsby Rudy J. Koshar

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    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...

  • Himmler's Auxiliariesby Valdis O. Lumans

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    Lumans studies the relations between Nazi Germany and the German minority populations of other European countries, examining these ties within the context of Hitler's foreign policy and the racial policies of SS Chief Heinrich Himmler.

  • Twisted Crossby Doris L. Bergen

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99 US$ 25.49

    How did Germany's Christians respond to Nazism? In Twisted Cross , Doris Bergen addresses one important element of this response by focusing on the 600,000 self-described 'German Christians,' who sought to expunge all Jewish elements from the Christian church. In a process that became more daring as Nazi plans for genocide unfolded, this group of... more...
