The Nazi dictatorship : problems and perspectives of interpretation by Ian Kershaw( Book )

87 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 2,493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As an exploration of the interpretational issues that eddy around the Third Reich, Ian Kershaw's Nazi Dictatorship has become a classic account. But if its core remains unchanged, its contents must necessarily reflect both new public controversies and the onrush of fresh research. In the forth edition there are many changes of detail to accommodate this need and substantial rewritings of two chapters. No subject among those dealt with in earlier editions has been the subject of such intensive research - and bringing such rapidly changing interpretations - as 'Hitler and the Jews' and, accordingly, that chapter has been considerably changed. The book's final chapter has also undergone significant revision, to take account of the 'Goldhagen phenomenon', and also to glance back over the changing trends of research on the Third Reich as, with the passing of the generations, Hitler and his regime themselves pass into history."--Jacket

To hell and back : Europe, 1914-1949 by Ian Kershaw( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Dutch and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Penguin History of Europe series reaches the twentieth century with ... Ian Kershaw's long-anticipated analysis of the pivotal years of World War I and World War II. The European catastrophe, the long continuous period from 1914 to 1949, was unprecedented in human history-- an extraordinarily dramatic, often traumatic, and endlessly fascinating period of upheaval and transformation. This new volume in the ... series offers comprehensive coverage of this tumultuous era. Beginning with the outbreak of World War I through the rise of Hitler and the aftermath of the Second World War, [the author] profiles the key decision makers and the violent shocks of war as they affected the entire European continent and radically altered the course of European history. Kershaw identifies four major causes for this catastrophe: an explosion of ethnic-racist nationalism, bitter and irreconcilable demands for territorial revisionism, acute class conflict given concrete focus through the Bolshevik Revolution, and a protracted crisis of capitalism. [This book] offers [a] study of a period in European history whose effects are still being felt today"
Making friends with Hitler : Lord Londonderry, the Nazis, and the road to war by Ian Kershaw( Book )

27 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Stewart Henry Vane-Tempest-Stewart, the 7th Marquess of Londonderry, was born to power and command. Scion of one of Britain's most aristocratic families, cousin of Churchill and confidant of the king, owner of vast coal fields and landed estates, married to the doyenne of London's social scene, Londonderry was an ornament to his class, the 0.1 percent of the population who still owned 30 percent of England's wealth as late as 1930. But history has not been kind to "Charley," as the king called him, because, in his own words, he "backed the wrong horse," and a very dark horse indeed: Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party. Londonderry was hardly the only British aristocrat to do so, but he was the only Cabinet member to do so, and it ruined him. In a final irony, his grand London house was bombed by the German Luftwaffe in the blitz." "Ian Kershaw is not out to rehabilitate Lord Londonderry but to understand him and to expose why he was made a scapegoat for views that were much more widely held than anyone now likes to think. Through the story of how Lord Londonderry came to be mixed up with the Nazis and how it all went horribly wrong for him, Ian Kershaw shows us that behind the familiar cartoon is a much more complicated and interesting reality, full of miscalculations on both sides, miscalculations that proved to be among the most fateful in history."--Jacket

Der Hitler-Mythos : Volksmeinung und Propaganda im Dritten Reich by Ian Kershaw( Book )

18 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bei der historischen Deutung der nationalsozialistischen Epoche bildet die Zentralfigur Hitlers noch immer den Gegenstand kontroverser Erklärungen. Die Flut neuer Hitlerbiographien vermochte wenig beizutragen zur Klärung der Frage, wie es kommen konnte, dass ein Mann solchen persönlichen und ideologischen Zuschnitts von breiten Schichten des deutschen Volkes mit fast religiöser Inbrunst als Führer verehrt wurde. Die im engen Kontakt mit dem Institut für Zeitgeschichte entstandene Schrift des britischen Historikers Ian Kershaw ist wohl der erste systematische Versuch, nicht die Person Hitlers
