Topics covered by the essays range from the design of the Nuremberg Party Rally Grounds to Nazi experiments with radio. Contributors address nearly every facet of the art and mass media under the Third Reich - efforts to define degenerate music; the promotion of race hatred and warfare through film, architecture and public assemblies; visual iconography and style; views of the racially ideal garden and landscape; portrayal and reception of art and culture abroad; the treatment of exiled artists; and issues of territory, conquest and cult. Anyone studying the history of Nazi Germany or the role of the arts in nationalist projects should benefit from this book.
