Representing the scholarship of historians who have largely based their findings on previously unpublished material, this volume (originally published in 1978) provides a critical and provocative assessment of many established opinions on significant themes related to the dramatic rise and development of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Movement. The volume discusses among other things:

  • The development of Hitler’s foreign policy ideas
  • The contributions of Gottfried Feder and Gregor Strasser to the successful growth of the Nazi party
  • The social composition of the Stormtroopers
  • The bureaucratic structure of the Third Reich
  • The character and scope of resistance within Germany to the regime
