'Larry Eugene Jones has long been in the front rank of historians of Weimar politics. His insightful new book on the German Right is a worthy companion to his earlier classic on the role of the nation's liberal parties in the rise of Nazism - and just as indispensable.' Peter Hayes, Professor Emeritus of German History, Northwestern University, Illinois
'This book is essential reading on Weimar's experiment in democracy and on the strategy to 'tame' Hitler and the Nazis. Based on a prodigious array of archival sources, Jones shows how political history should be written, with due attention to continuity and rupture. A stunning achievement.' James Retallack, University of Toronto
'This brings together a lifetime of research and the most advanced analysis of the democratic dilemma of German conservatism in the Weimar Republic. The failure to bridge the divide between political stabilization from the Right and outright national opposition prevented Weimar's transformation into a Tory Democracy. A timely reminder against the recent trend to write the 'history of democracy' with the politics left out.' Bernd Weisbrod, University of Goettingen
