Publisher description: From one of the world's most distinguished historians, a magisterial new reckoning with Hitler's rise to power and the collapse of civilization in Nazi Germany. In 1900 Germany was the most progressive and dynamic nation in Europe, the only country whose rapid technological and social growth and change challenged that of the United States. Its political culture was less authoritarian than Russia's and less anti-Semitic than France's; representative institutions were thriving, and competing political parties and elections were a central part of life. How then can we explain the fact that in little more than a generation this stable modern country would be in the hands of a violent, racist, extremist political movement that would lead it and all of Europe into utter moral, physical, and cultural ruin? There is no story in twentieth-century history more important to understand, and Richard Evans has written the definitive account for our time. A masterful synthesis of a vast body of scholarly work integrated with important new research and interpretations, Evans's history restores drama and contingency to the rise to power of Hitler and the Nazis, even as he shows how ready Germany was by the early 1930s for such a takeover to occur. With many people angry and embittered by military defeat and economic ruin; a state undermined by a civil service, an army, and a law enforcement system deeply alienated from the democratic order introduced in 1918; beset by the growing extremism of voters prey to panic about the increasing popularity of communism; home to a tiny but quite successful Jewish community subject to widespread suspicion and resentment, Germany proved to be fertile ground in which Nazism's ideology of hatred could take root. The first book of what will ultimately be a complete three-volume history of Nazi Germany, The Coming of the Third Reich is a masterwork of the historian's art and the book by which all others on this subject will be judged.… (mer)

Very informative, but I picked up on two errors which were worrying:

1. When discussing the Reichstag Fire and Marinus van der Lubbe, Evans suggests that anarcho-syndicalists call for the "propaganda of the deed" tactic. They definitely do not. This seems like a big error, especially since we're dealing with a historical controversy like the Reichstag Fire. Plus, I'm an anarchist so I'm just grumpy that Evans got facts about anarchy wrong. From this, I suspect his slightly condescending treatment of the "regime of the coffeehouse anarchists" is unfair and uninformed.

2. The French Revolution's Republican Calendar did not begin with 1789. (page 460 in the first American edition) Year One started in 1792, when the king was removed from power.

I'm only sorta being nit-picky. These two errors make me think that there are many more. ( )

I selected this book for background reading regarding World War II and my ongoing study of the United States presidents. Since I am currently "studying" FDR I felt that I needed to understand what the war was all about. Before reading this book, my total understanding of Nazi Germany was a dictator who wanted to rule the world while eliminating the Jewish people and showing the world Aryan supremacy. Wow, did I get an education! And now I know I need more information.

This book showed the dangers of following blindly the dictates of a charismatic leader who has his own agenda which may or may not be the best for all. IMO what I saw in Hitler from this book, was a man who originally wanted to free the German people from the penalties that had been inflicted on Germany by the Allies at the end of World War I. And that cause was probably valid, however, once he managed to gain power he went to the extremes of controlling everything forcing the German Jews before the war to leave or buckle under. Those that left survived, those that chose to remain were annihilated. Hitler took a fledgling democratic society and within a few short years, forced those that were not part of the Nazi party (5 major political parties) and wiped them out with violence and intimidation.

Reading of how artists and scientists were treated if they were Jewish or married to a Jew is shocking, but seeing the numbers and names of those who were involved even more so. Three of the displaced scientists—Einstein, Franck, and Schrödinger
had already received the Nobel prize in physics. five more would eventually receive the prize. Artists were also driven out in a "cultural cleansing". Wikipedia states it better than I can. "In 1937 in Munich, two simultaneous events demonstrated the Nazis’ views about art. One exhibition displayed art that should be eliminated (“The Degenerate Art Exhibition”), while the other promoted, by contrast, the official aesthetic (“The Great German Art Exhibition”)." Modern artists were said to be compromising the purity of the German race and lost their jobs at galleries and such while artwork was removed and destroyed. If they remained in Germany, many ended up in concentration camps.

The revelations in this book are alarming. Similarities are noticeable with today's society. We must not let this ever happen again. ( )

Not scintillating, but perfectly solid history. Evans is an awe-inspiring organizer of information, he writes clearly, and he's sceptical towards historical revisionism that hasn't entirely proved its case... but will also let you know what the revisionists say, while cautioning that they're only telling part of the story. One of the great public-facing historians of our time. I'm already enjoying the next volume of this one, and can't wait to read his Hobsbawm biography. ( )

A great book on the social, economic and ideological roots of Nazi Germany. The author explains in close detail how chaotic the political situation was in the Weimar republic. Not only did it suffer from extreme economic problems, but several major political parties actively rejected and undermined its weak democratic institutions. As a result, the legitimacy of legal authority eroded and the Nazi grassroots movement could eventually terrorize its targets at will. Nationalists yearning for military leadership tried to co-opt Hitler for their own purposes, but misplayed their hand with terrible consequences.
