Hitler's library


Description

"This work "browses" into Hitler's library: it investigates the collection by shedding new light on the readings and reading habits of Hitler, and presents a comprehensive picture of the origins of the era's dominant ideals and their influence on the Nazi ideology." "How and why did such rabble obtain such immense power? How did the cult of the self and the cult of the individual become indivisibly intertwined with an exalted death cult and fear of death simultaneously? The book describes the Gnostic character of the phenomenon as an explication of the success of Nazism and that of the Hitler myth and challenges the static views of traditional historiography."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
