This is a collection of ten path-breaking essays on the history of the National Socialist regime in Germany. The topics covered here include the origins of the Second World War, the role of Hitler in the Nazi regime, and the position of the working class and of women under National Socialism. Each essay defines or reinterprets a significant debate in the history of the Nazi period. The essays, collected here for the first time, include four hitherto not published in English.
