Creating the Nazi marketplace : commerce and consumption in the Third Reich by S. Jonathan Wiesen( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Nazis came to power in 1933, they promised to build a vibrant consumer society. But they faced a dilemma. They recognized that consolidating support for the regime required providing Germans with the products they desired. At the same time, the Nazis worried about the degrading cultural effects of mass consumption and its association with "Jewish" interests. This book examines how both the state and private companies sought to overcome this predicament. Drawing on a wide range of sources - advertisements, exhibition programs, films, consumer research, and marketing publications - the book traces the ways National Socialists attempted to create their own distinctive world of buying and selling. At the same time, it shows how corporate leaders and everyday Germans navigated what S. Jonathan Wiesen calls "the Nazi marketplace." A groundbreaking work that combines cultural, intellectual, and business history, Creating the Nazi Marketplace offers an innovative interpretation of commerce and ideology in the Third Reich"--
West German industry and the challenge of the Nazi past, 1945-1955 by S. Jonathan Wiesen( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Jonathan Wiesen explores how West German business leaders remade and marketed their public image between 1945 and 1955. He challenges assumptions that West Germans - and industrialists in particular - were silent about the recent past during the years of denazification and reconstruction. Drawing on sources that include private correspondence, popular literature, and a wealth of unpublished materials from corporate archives, Wiesen reveals the intensity with which German companies attempted to absolve themselves of responsibility for Nazi crimes and rehabilitate their reputations. Looking to the United States for moral support, firms such as Siemens and Krupp developed publicity strategies that serve as telling examples of postwar selective memory." "Merging cultural history and business history, Wiesen uses the story of industrial image-making to demonstrate how the legacy of the Nazi past powerfully shaped West German mentalities during the years of postwar reconstruction."--Jacket
