Most widely held works by Peter Longerich
Heinrich Himmler by Peter Longerich( Book )

51 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this, the first-ever comprehensive biography of the Reichsführer-SS, leading German historian Peter Longerich puts every aspect of Himmler's life under the microscope. Masterfully interweaving the story of Himmler's personal life and political career with the wider history of the Nazi dictatorship, Longerich shows how skillfully he exploited and manipulated his disparate roles in the pursuit of his far-reaching and grandiose objectives. In the process, he illuminates the extraordinary degree to which Himmler's own personal prejudices, idiosyncrasies, and predilections made their mark on the organizations for which he was responsible--especially the SS, which in so many ways bore the characteristic hallmarks of its leader, and whose history remains incomprehensible without a detailed and intimate knowledge of its deeply sinister commander-in-chief"--Dust-jacket
Holocaust : the Nazi persecution and murder of the Jews by Peter Longerich( Book )

28 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing closely on the perpetrators and exploring the process of decision making, Longerich convincingly shows that anti-Semitism was not a mere by-product of the Nazis' political mobilization or an attempt to deflect the attention of the masses. Rather, from 1933 anti-Jewish policy was a central tenet of the Nazi movement's attempts to implement, disseminate, and secure National Socialist rule--and one which crucially shaped Nazi policy decisions--Résumé de l'éditeur
Goebbels : a biography by Peter Longerich( Book )

25 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a young man, Joseph Goebbels was a budding narcissist with constant need of approval. Through political involvement, he found personal affirmation within the German National Socialist Party. In this comprehensive volume, Peter Longerich documents Goebbels' descent into antisemitism and ideology and ascent through the ranks of the Nazi party, where he became an integral member Hitler's inner circle and where he shaped a brutal campaign of Nazi propaganda. In life and in his grisly family suicide, Goebbels was one of Hitler's most loyal accolytes. Though powerful in the party and in wartime Germany, Longerich's Goebbels is a man dogged by insecurities and consumed by his fierce adherence to the Nazi cause. Longerich engages and challenges the careful self-portrait that Goebbels left behind in his diaries, and, as he delves deep into the mind of Hitler's master propagandist, Longerich discovers first-hand how the Nazi message was conceived. This complete portrait of the man behind the message is sure to become a standard for historians and students of the holocaust for years to come."
The unwritten order : Hitler's role in the final solution by Peter Longerich( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Holocaust differs from other genocides in recent history for one main reason: there is no other example in which a minority was annihilated systematically and as completely as possible on the orders of a head of state and through the apparatus of government." "The fact that the murder of the European Jews was the result of conscious decisions made at the highest levels of the Third Reich has been under-emphasized in the research on the Holocaust. Through the discovery of new documents, the central role that Hitler played in the persecution and murder of the European Jews can be proved much more conclusively than was possible just a few years ago. Although it would be a mistake to put the murder of the Jews down to Hitler's will alone (especially as numerous studies have brought out the shared responsibility and active involvement of a large number of accomplices), it is time to make clear once again that Hitler was the driving force behind the radicalisation of the National Socialist policy of extermination. To put it simply: without Hitler there would have been no Holocaust." "The aim of the book is to offer documentary proof of Hitler's central role in the murder of the European Jews. In order to achieve this aim, various documents and fragments of documents have been pieced together and the codified language of the dictator deciphered."--BOOK JACKET

Am 20. Januar 1942 kamen fünfzehn hochrangige Vertreter des NS-Staates auf Einladung von Reinhard Heydrich in einer luxuriösen Villa am Wannsee zusammen, um über die "Endlösung" der "Judenfrage" zu beraten: Man entschied, so dokumentiert es das Protokoll, insgesamt elf Millionen Menschen zu deportieren, sie mörderischer Zwangsarbeit auszusetzen und die Überlebenden und Nichtarbeitsfähigen auf andere Weise ums Leben zu bringen. Peter Longerich, einer der angesehensten Historiker der NS-Geschichte, zeigt, wie die Führungsinstanz des "Dritten Reiches" aus einer vagen Absicht zur Vernichtung der Juden ein konkretes Mordprogramm entwickelte und welch hohe Bedeutung der Wannseekonferenz innerhalb des Holocaust zukommt
Hitler Biographie by Peter Longerich( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in German and Dutch and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tyrann, Psychopath, Vollstrecker eines rassenideologischen >>Programms<< - oder gar charismatischer >>Führer<<, dem seine Anhänger >>entgegengearbeitet<< haben? Peter Longerich geht in seiner neuen Biographie über die bisherigen Hitler-Deutungen hinaus: Er entwirft das Bild eines Diktators, der weit mehr und viel aktiver als bisher angenommen in die unterschiedlichsten Politikbereiche persönlich eingriff. Erst das Zusammenspiel der Kräfte, die Hitler bewegten, mit jenen, die er selbst in Bewegung setzte, lässt uns erkennen, was das >>Dritte Reich<< im Innersten zusammenhielt. (Quelle: Buchhandel.de)
