Praise for the first edition:

'This is an important new textbook on the Nazi period which is geared to intermediate and advanced undergraduates and will also interest general audiences ... this book is a real winner and deserves wide use.' - Bruce Campbell, German Studies Review

'An excellent job... provides a comprehensive and sophisticated analysis of the origins of National Socialism in Germany, Hitler's rise to power, and the nature of the Nazi regime after 1933... no small achievement.' - David Crew, University of Texas, Austin

Hitler's Germany provides a comprehensive narrative history of Nazi Germany and sets it in the wider context of nineteenth- and twentieth-century German history. Roderick Stackelberg analyzes how it was possible that a national culture of such creativity and achievement could generate such barbarism and destructiveness.

This second edition has been updated throughout to incorporate recent historical research and engage with current debates in the field. It includes

an expanded introduction focusing on the hazards of writing about Nazi Germany

an extended analysis of fascism, totalitarianism, imperialism, and ideology

a broadened contextualisation of antisemitism

discussion of the Holocaust including the euthanasia program and the role of eugenics

new chapters on Nazi social and economic policies and the structure of government as well as on the role of culture, the arts, education and religion

additional maps, tables, and a chronology

a fully updated bibliography.

Exploring the controversies surrounding Nazism and its afterlife in historiography and historical memory, Hitler's Germany provides students with an interpretive framework for understanding this extraordinary episode in German and European history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The first edition of Hitler's Germany was praised for its usefulness for students of Nazi Germany and for the general reader, and the second edition is equally so. Stackelberg writes in plain English and brilliantly summarises even the most complicated areas of the Nazi period and the most arcane historical debates. This is a first class work of synthesis ...There is good reason for every school library to have a copy of this book and for every teacher of the history of the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany to have one too. So as they say, rush out and buy it.' - History Teaching Review
