The Rise of the Nazis (2nd, revised and expanded edition)

Conan Fischer

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In this new edition of The Rise of the Nazis, Conan Fischer takes stock of the current debates on how and why the Nazis seized power in Germany. The book begins with an overview of the historical context within which Nazism grew, looking at foreign relations, politics and society of Weinmar, and in particular, at the role of the elites in the rise of Nazism. It proceeds to examine the anatomy of Nazism itself. Since the publication of the first edition, important new works have appeared and this new scholarship has been incorporated into the text.
