The image of Hitler as a demagogic 'pied piper' leading astray the 'little people' of Austria is as misleading as it is powerful. Nazism and the Working Class in Austria is a case study of the ambiguous relationship between state and society in Austria under the Nazis. It places the experience of Austrian industrial workers in the Third Reich in a broader historical context, from the origins of the earliest 'national socialist' movements in the backwaters of the Habsburg empire to the end of the Second World War. Workers did not seriously attempt or even expect to overthrow the Nazi regime in the face of unprecedented surveillance and terror; but neither were they converted, and their oppositional strategies and disgruntled political opinions reveal a truculent workforce, rather than one that was contented and converted.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a valuable contribution to our understanding of the complex relationship between the working class and Nazism. Well-researched and well-written, it is thoughtful and stimulating in approach, and deserves a wide readership.' Detlef Muhlberger, Labour History Review
"This book...provides further evidence that the National Socialist notion of 'community' was a sham, and that the attitude of Austrians towards the regime differed little from that of Germans." Martin Kitchen, Canadian Journal of History
...Kirk presents an interesting insight into the whole range of workers resistance..." Michael Pammer, Journal of Economic History
"...there is so much if interest in Nazism and the Working Class in Austria...." Peter H. Hoffenberg, Labor History
