In this brilliant and eye-opening collection, Richard J. Precisely these valuable assets regarding their quantity and traits are significant factors that will manifest themselves from their first battle. Written with Evans' sharp-eyed insight and characteristically compelling style, these essays offer a summation of the collective cultural memory of Nazism in the present, and suggest the degree to which memory must be subjected to the close scrutiny of history.

    In the seventy years since the demise of the Third Reich, there has been a significant transformation in the ways in which the modern world understands Nazism. Gypsies, too, became targets for mass murder. Exploring the complex relationship between memory and history, Evans also points out the places where the growing need to confront the misdeeds of Nazism and expose the complicity of those who participated has led to crude and sweeping condemnation, when instead historians should be making careful distinctions. That Hitler could consider himself colossally humane tells us something important and devastating not only about Hitler and the Germans who repeatedly justified their extermination of the Jews and their other murderous actions. Evans also explores the 'global turn' in historical studies in recent years, revealing how it has broadened our understanding of the Third Reich in an international context; considers the development of research in the area of Nazi society, particularly in the understanding of Nazi Germany as a political system based on popular approval and consent; and discusses the growing focus on postwar Germany and its subterranean continuities with the Nazi era.

    Evans considers how the Third Reich is increasingly viewed in a broader international context, as part of the age of imperialism; discusses the growing emphasis on the larger economic and cultural circumstances of the era; and emphasizes the development of research into Nazi society, particularly in the understanding of Nazi Germany as a political system based on popular approval and consent. There was, however, some German opposition to the Nazi state, ranging from nonconformity to the attempt to kill Hitler on July 20, No part of this excerpt may be reproduced or reprinted without permission in writing from the publisher.
