This book is the culmination of more than three decades of meticulous historiographic research on Nazi Germany by one of the period's most distinguished historians. The volume brings together the most important and influential aspects of Ian Kershaw's research on the Holocaust for the first time. The writings are arranged in three sections: Hitler and the Final Solution, popular opinion and the Jews in Nazi Germany, and the Final Solution in historiography. Kershaw provides an introduction and a closing section on the uniqueness of Nazism. Kershaw was a founding historian of the social history of the Third Reich, and he has throughout his career conducted pioneering research on the societal causes and consequences of Nazi policy. His work has brought much to light concerning the ways in which the attitudes of the German populace shaped and did not shape Nazi policy. Taken together, the journal articles and book chapters selected for this volume present a comprehensive, multi-faceted picture both of the destructive dynamic of the Nazi leadership and of the attitudes and behaviour of ordinary Germans as the persecution of the Jews spiraled into total genocide.Revue de presse :
'This short book goes to the heart of the great debates over Nazism, then examines the progress of the debates themselves... an important contribution to the historiography of the Second World War. Plus it's a page-turner.' Andrew Roberts, The Mail on Sunday. 'An excellent chance to acquire, in a single volume, Kershaw's writings on the Holocaust... The classic essays in the first two sections of the book will remain required reading for students of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust for years to come.' Dan Stone, BBC History Magazine. 'To a field that is increasingly fragmented, faddish and cursed by jargon, Kershaw brings a grounded, unified perspective that is conveyed with precision and clarity. His unflashy style, personal reticence and sheer decency are, sadly, too often absent among 'celebrity historians''. David Cesarini, Literary Review --The Mail on Sunday, BBC History Magazine, Literary Review
