Readership: All students of Nazi Germany, the Second World War, or Germany in the first half of the twentieth century.
Edited by Jane Caplan, Professor of Modern European History, University of Oxford, and Fellow of St Antony's College, Oxford
"Excellent...work of exceptional quality. It is difficult to think of a better guide to Nazi Germany (even in German). It should gain an immediate place at the top of all reading lists." - Joachim Whaley, Journal of European Studies
"In a brief format it provides a broad, state-of-the-art picture of Nazi Germany. The editor and the authors deserve credit for this service to scholars and teachers of the field." - Moritz Follmer, English Historical Review.
"Jane Caplan's book encompasses overviews on the most important topics on an up-to-date level by experts who have established reputations from major
research publications on their area...in their effort to combine precise information with balanced reflection of historical perspectives, most of those chapters achieve a remarkably high level of density while still being readable. This is no small achievement." - Magnus Brechtken, Times Higher Education Supplement
"Caplan and her team of authors have succeeded in producing an extremely useful volume, which will definitely become standard reading for all university courses on National Socialism." - Patrick Bernhard, European History Quarterly.
