Performing the Nation in Interwar Germany argues that political aesthetics and mass spectacles were no invention of the Nazis but characterized the period from the mid-1920s to the mid-1930s. In so doing, it re-examines the role of state representation and propaganda in the Weimar Republic and the Nazi dictatorship.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In Performing the Nation, Nadine Rossol highlights continuities in German political representation that transcended the historical divide of 1933, and, in so doing, she challenges the notion that the Nazis invented the mass spectacle...One of the greatest strengths of Rossol's study is its depiction of the gradual evolution in the scale and assertiveness of the Weimar Republic's self-celebration. Rossol's study provides another important example of the continuities that linked the Weimar Republic and the Nazi regime, and she incorporates a great deal of material in this book that will be of value to cultural historians of the period.'
