The Nazi Dictatorship
Problems and Perspectives of Interpretation 4th New edition
By (author) Ian Kershaw
Nazi Dictatorship by Ian Kershaw
Book DescriptionThe Nazi Dictatorship has become the classic exploration of the complex issues historians face when they interpret the Third Reich. Ian Kershaw synthesizes and evaluates this complex historiography, looking at the major themes and debates relating to Nazism and drawing widely on the findings of a great deal of research, in particular by German scholars, which is not available in English. He describes key interpretational problems, outlines the approaches taken by various historians, and then provides clear and up-to-date evaluations of their positions. This new edition reflects current concerns and fresh research. It contains substantial revisions to the chapter on Hitler and the Jews and to the survey of recent historical work, particularly with respect to the 'Goldhagen phenomenon.' Anyone with an interest in modern European history will find this volume invaluable. 'Impressive...acute...extraordinary.' - English Historical Review 'Unquestionably the most authoriatative, balanced, readable, and meticulously documented introduction to the Third Reich.' - International History Review 'The best short introduction to the study of Hitler's Germany.' - European History Review

To Hell and Back, Paperback (June 2016)
In the summer of 1914 most of Europe plunged into a war so catastrophic that it unhinged the continent's politics and beliefs in a way that took generations to recover from. This title presents the narrative of events. It also deals with the most difficult issues that the events raise - with what it meant for the Europeans who initiated and more.
End, Paperback (April 2012)
In almost every major war there comes a point where defeat looms for one side and its rulers cut a deal with the victors, if only in an attempt to save their own skins. This title offers an account of the final months of the Nazi war machine, from the failed attempt to assassinate Hitler in July 1944 to the German surrender in May 1945.
