The Nazi regime was a regime of unparalleled destructiveness. Nazism presents both key texts from some of the most innovative and challenging of more recent studies and extracts from the older historiography of the origins, nature, impact, and legacy of the National Socialist regime. Itsuggests both the need to re-read and re-consider much forgotten or ignored texts from earlier generations of commentators and the possibility of considering afresh the structure, style of rule, and consequences of National Socialism in the context provided by the end of the cold war. The textsconnect the experiences of the Jewish and non-Jewish victims of Nazi aggression and genocide; links the fates of the victims with analysis of the perpetrators; and stresses the consequences of this unprecedented collapse in civilised values for post war Germany and the world.
