Editorial Reviews

"This book provides an important point of access to the phenomenon of Inner Emigration in Germany during the Third Reich. The vivid parallels between Friedrich Reck-Malleczewen's 1937 account of the Münster Anabaptist uprising in 1534 and Hitler's Third Reich in Germany make this intriguing work a fascinating document of opposition to the Nazi regime."--Neil H. Donahue, Professor of German and Comparative Literature, Hofstra University
