BOOK EXCERPT:

This book contains the biographies of Hitler's three henchmen, G�bbels, Himmler and G�ring, the longest loyal servants of Hitler. It utilises both older biographies, because of their insights, and more recent scholarly publications, as well as diaries (such as those of G�bbels and Ciano).The volume illustrates that G�bbels' support was three-fold, in campaign managing, propaganda and myth-building. Himmler's terror apparatus supressed occupied Europe, and controlled Germans, ensuring that Hitler retained power. G�ring's control of the economy and the Luftwaffe and his personal support of Hitler were critical as demonstrated by his trial at Nuremberg, but he was the weakest link from 1940 as he became virtually ineffectual. In addition, and new to this area of study, the book introduces the work of Stephen Roberts, an academic who actually met these men in 1936, and whose insights are revealing. The volume also examines the question of their mental stability in the light of psychopathic studies.

BOOK EXCERPT:

La Seconda guerra mondiale costituisce una cesura nella storia delle ricezioni del mito di Antigone: lesperienza del totalitarismo e della Resistenza condiziona in maniera determinante la lettura della tragedia di Sofocle. Eppure cè un salto cronologico tra lAntigone di Brecht (1948) e la ricomparsa del mito di Antigone nel teatro e nella letteratura dei primi anni Sessanta. Dopo il 1945, infatti, seguì una bleierne Zeit, unetà di piombo, la cui parola dordine fu: dimenticare. Loblio divenne alibi e conforto insieme. Solo a fatica, a partire dal processo Eichmann (1961), si cominciò davvero a disseppellire il passato, e ne scaturì un tremendo conflittosociale. Sul finire degli anni Sessanta, i figli accusarono i padri di aver consapevolmente taciuto lorrore e di perpetuare nello Stato capitalista gli stessi meccanismi politici e repressivi della tirannia fascista. Alcuni ingaggiarono contro lo Stato democratico, durante i nuovi anni di piombo, una lotta a mano armata. I mezzi di comunicazione amplificarono le immagini di corpi insanguinati sullasfalto, fotografati con una stella a cinque punte sullo sfondo, umiliati nelle ultime ore, cadaveri abbandonati come manichini rotti nel cofano di automobili. In quella nuova guerra, tornava dattualità il diritto dei morti. Tornava Antigone, nellineditoe non antico ruolo della ribelle omicida.Il libro traccia la storia delle ricezioni letterarie di Antigone dal 1945 ai primi anni 80, in unEuropa prima ridotta in macerie e poi straziata in blocchi ideologici, attraverso testi e autori più noti (Anhouil, Brecht, Döblin, Jens, Böll) e altri decisamente meno conosciuti (Langgässer, Hubalek, Hochhuth, Karvaš, Delbo, Weil).

BOOK EXCERPT:

"In the spring of 1945, Führer and Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler, President Edvard Beneš, and Marshal Josip Broz Tito stood as examples of the complete rupture between the Germans and Austrians on the one hand, and the Czechs, Slovaks, Slovenes, Croats, Serbs, and Bosniaks on the other. The total break that occurred in World War II with war crimes, crimes against humanity, and even genocides (particularly against the Jews and "Gypsies") had a long pre-history, beginning with violent nationalist clashes in the Habsburg Monarchy during the revolutions of 1848/49. Therefore, this monograph - based on a broad range of international primary and secondary sources - explores the development of the political, legal, economic, social, and cultural 'communities of conflict' within Austria-Hungary, especially in the Bohemian and South Slavic countries, the making of the Paris Peace Treaties in 1919/20 by violating President Wilson's principle of self-determination, particularly in drawing new borders and creating new economic units, and the perpetuated ethnic-national conflicts between Czechs and Germans, Slovaks and Magyars, Slovenes and Germans, Croats and Serbs as well as Serbs and Germans in the successor states, deepening the differences between the nations of East-Central Europe. Although many kings, presidents, chancellors, ministers, governors, diplomats, business tycoons, generals, Nazi-Gauleiter, higher SS and police leaders, and Communist functionaries have appeared as historical actors in the 170 years of East-Central and Southeastern European history, Hitler, Beneš, and Tito remain especially present in historical memory at the beginning of the twenty-first century"--Publisher's description.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The study of modern racism has tended to treat anti-Semitism and anti-black racism as separate and unconnected phenomena. This innovative study argues that a full understanding of the origins and development of racism in Europe after 1870 needs to examine the structure and interrelationships between the two dominant forms of prejudice. Contrary to expectation. anti-black racism was not confined to the colonial maritime nations of western Europe, but pepetrated even the rural societies of central and eastern Europe. Likewise, anti-Semitism could flourish even in the almost total absence of Jews. MacMaster explores the conditions under which modern political movements, faced with the crisis of modernity, began to draw upon and mobilise the negative stereotypes that, through the development of the mass media, had become almost universal features of popular culture. By weaving together the changing spatial and temporal dimensions of anti-Semitic and anti-black prejudice the study provides a fresh and more global framework for understanding modern racism.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Hitler's Airwaves sets Goebbels' propaganda orchestra, a swing band fronted by the crooner, Karl ('Charlie') Schwedler, within the context of the Reich Ministry for Propaganda. The first book-length study of the full extent of the Nazi propaganda effort, it draws on a vast array of newly-available material: interviews with contemporaries and treason trial transcripts, the private archive of Roderich Dietze, wartime head of German radio's English-language service, reports of the BBC's monitoring service, recently declassified FBI and MI5 files, and documents in the Bonn Foreign Ministry, the Budesarchiv and the former Berlin Document Centre. Bergmeier and Lotz explore the origins of subversive radio broadcasting, describe the establishment of Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry and the rapid growth of its foreign-language broadcasting division, and provide the most detailed anatomy we have of its organisation, operation and personnel. They examine the workings of the so-called 'Secret Stations', ostensibly run by opposition groups broadcasting from inside target countries, but actually located in the Berlin Olympic stadium. And they reveal the ingenious scam of Radio Arnhem which, for several months in 1944-45, the Germans passed off a genuine Allied forces programme.
