The image of man : the creation of modern masculinity by George L Mosse( )

37 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 2,257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Image of Man, noted historian George L. Mosse provides the first historical account of the masculine stereotype in modern Western culture, tracing the evolution of the idea of manliness to reveal how it came to embody physical beauty, courage, moral restraint, and a strong will. This stereotype, he finds, originated in the tumultuous changes of the eighteenth century, as Europe's dominant aristocrats grudgingly yielded to the rise of the professional, bureaucratic, and commercial middle classes. Mosse reveals how the new bourgeoisie, faced with a bewildering, rapidly industrialized world, latched onto the knightly ideal of chivalry. And he shows how the rise of universal conscription created a soldierly man as an ideal type. In England, the nineteenth century gave rise to an educational system that emphasized athletics, team sports, and physical strength, as did the gymnastics movement on the continent. At the same time, ideals of a standard of masculine beauty developed throughout the continent, intertwined with theories of art and personal comportment. Indeed, in the nineteenth century, the idea of manliness appeared in so many areas of life and thought that it was accepted as a social constant, a permanent endowment granted by nature. Mosse shows, however, that it continued to evolve, particularly in contrast to stereotypes of women and unmanly men - Jews and homosexuals - all considered weak and fearful, unable to control their passions. Mosse concludes that socialism also made use of this stereotype, while in the twentieth century Fascism took this process to its extremes - mass political rallies glorified the fearless storm trooper as outsiders were stigmatized and persecuted
Nazi culture : intellectual, cultural, and social life in the Third Reich by George L Mosse( Book )

56 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was life like under the Third Reich? What went on between parents and children? What were the prevailing attitudes about sex, morality, religion? How did workers perceive the effects of the New Order in the workplace? What were the cultural currents -- in art, music, science, education, drama, and on the radio? Professor Mosse has recaptured the texture of life and thought using selections from newspapers, novellas, plays, and diaries as well as the public announcements of Nazi leaders, churchmen, and professors to describe National Socialism in practice and what it meant for the average German. - Back cover
The crisis of German ideology : intellectual origins of the Third Reich by George L Mosse( Book )

68 editions published between 1964 and 2002 in English and German and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unification of Germany in 1871 disappointed many Germans from the bourgeois and educated classes: it was seen as too materialistic, and they thought that the Germans failed to achieve inner, spiritual unity through the establishment of the Empire. This disappointment brought about the rise of the "völkisch" movement, which rejected modernity and stressed the unity of the Germans through the bond of German "blood and soil". The "völkisch" ideology acquired traits of a national religion, in which antisemitism was an important element. The stereotyped "rootless" and "soulless" Jew seemed to be the enemy of the "Volk". Gradually, "völkisch" antisemitism acquired a racist and mystical character. Dwells on the rightist conservative organizations and youth movements (e.g. the Pan-German Association, the Wandervögel) that belonged to the "völkisch" movement and shared its antisemitism. Nazism was a natural outgrowth of the this movement. Hitler transformed its anti-capitalism into antisemitism, radicalized the latter and made it into a political vehicle. The Nazi idea found its greatest support among the educated classes, just like the "völkisch" idea had had its appeal to them before 1914. Antisemitism was not transitory, but endemic to Nazism. Dwells, also, on another party that grew out of the "völkisch" movement - the Deutschnationale Volkspartei (1918-33), and on the transformation of its antisemitism

Toward the final solution : a history of European racism by George L Mosse( Book )

42 editions published between 1978 and 1997 in English and held by 1,543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Racism incorporated the important ideas and movements of the 19th-20th centuries and promised to solve the problems created by modernization. Traces the development of racism from the Enlightenment attitude towards Blacks and the beginnings of anthropology in the early 19th century. Organic nationalism and "völkisch" nationalism in Germany denied that Jews could become part of the nation or speak its language. Eugenics, which developed in England from social Darwinism, was not necessarily racist, but spread the fear of "degeneration" and of hereditary depravity, which was then identified with Jewishness. Discusses also the occult or mystical element of racism. Surveys the rise of political antisemitism in France and Germany from the 1870s, the effects of World War I and the Russian Revolution, Nazism and the Holocaust
The Reformation by George L Mosse( Book )

34 editions published between 1953 and 1983 in English and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Book is an excellent introduction to the main personalities and chronology of the Reformation. The coverage of Martin Luther is brief, but the section on John Calvin and the role of Calvinism to the broader Reformation is quite good. Overall, the book does a good job of covering the Reformation in England. Specifically, Mosse nicely reveals the interplay between religion and politics that resulted in the theological ambiguity of Anglicanism."--Amazon.com
