Summary

Summary

Richard Bessel, history professor at the University of York, specializes in the social and political history of Nazi Germany. In four compelling essays, he forcefully argues that racism made war inevitable. The Third Reich, led by "a band of political gangsters," came to power with a deep ideological commitment to war and racism. As the driving force behind the economics, social policy and propaganda of Germany, racial hatred was the catalyst that plunged Europe into war.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] stimulating and thoughtful volume.” Literary Review (London)
“This noted historian’s book on Nazism offers both the serious scholar and the lay reader a concise yet comprehensive perspective on the events and horrors of that period…[A] well-rounded portrait of the country and its citizenry.” Publishers Weekly
“A thorough, fascinating, and chilling account of the social and political history of Nazism and Nazi Germany…George Wilson’s deep, distinctive voice is an excellent complement to the material. His performance is neither dry nor boring. To the contrary, he uses intonations and emotions to convey his outrage at the events surrounding the rise and fall of the Third Reich.” AudioFile
“Clear, engaging, and quietly profound.” Booklist
