Originally written in 1932, but not published at the time, this sociological study of the lower middle classes during the Weimar period also deals with their political ideology. Focuses on white collar organizations, among them the nationalist clerks' association - the DHV (Deutschnationaler Handlungsgehilfen-Verband) - which had adopted a "völkisch" antisemitic ideology since the 1890s. Their publishing house disseminated works by nationalist, antisemitic, and anti-democratic authors, including Theodor Fritsch. Argues that contempt for Jews gave the lower middle class workers a feeling of social superiority. In 1933 they enthusiastically joined the Nazi Labor Front

9 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long known as a pioneer in the sociological study of communications and of the middle class, Hans Speier is being rediscovered by younger scholars as a seminal member of the second generation of sociologists that followed the classic thinkers of the turn of the century. Dr Speier introduces this collection of his most significant essays with an autobiographical chapter discussing the evolution of his work. The essays are grouped in five categories: social theory, war and militarism, public opinion and propaganda, the history of literature, and 'the present and the future'. They include writings on honour and social structure, hero worship, militarism in the eighteenth century, psychological warfare, and Shakespeare's The Tempest, among others. Sophisticated and eloquent, these essays will appeal to scholars in numerous fields as those interested in the development of sociological thought in the twentieth century

Crisis and catharsis in the Middle East, 1965 : a chapter of German foreign policy by Hans Speier( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

German military help to Israel on behalf of the United States was discontinued because it was judged to have an adverse effect on the chances of reunification. But this decision, too, had broader implication. It was taken in an effort to disentangle the Federal Republic from the arms race in the Middle East, from the struggle between Germany's Western allies and the communist powers. The Federal Republic wanted to disengage itself from world politics, just as it had refused to support British policy in Cyprus or to give a token of material support to the U.S. effort in Vietnam. It therefore appears that 'independence' of German foreign policy may mean two very different things. It may be advocated by those who wish the Federal Republic to pursue a more energetic policy of its own (on reunification) but also by those who wish that it avoid 'unpleasant participation in foreign risks' and stay out of political conflicts.
