How To Read Hitler

Neil Gregor

Incoherent, obsessive and violent, Hitler’s ideas nonetheless found an audience of millions and led to one of the most horrific and devastating conflicts of the 20th century. Taking two of Hitler’s texts as his starting point, Neil Gregor discusses ‘this second-rate mind of great power’ and helps the reader to understand the nature and popular reception of Hitler’s crude but hugely influential writings.
