Booklist Review

Gr. 7^-12. Quoting biographer John Toland in his introduction, Nardo claims of Hitler: "No other human disrupted so many lives . . . stirred so much hatred . . . inspired widespread adoration and was the hope and ideal of millions." Such sweeping and captivating statements serve as the perfect hook to grab readers and carry them through this fascinating historical journey sure to answer many questions concerning both what happened early in our century and how history took such an appalling turn. As much an analysis of Hitler's personality and Germany's temperament as a review of European history, the essays cover the expected (political development of Nazism, the "final solution" of Jewish genocide) and include nuances (film censorship and antifeminism) that flesh out the portrait of the ruler and regime that changed the world. Though primarily a history resource, the book could also provide effective support for psychology and sociology studies. An extensive appendix offers several excerpts from original Nazi documents, and the chronology and index will aid researchers. --Roger Leslie


School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-This book contains well-chosen excerpts of essays and books written by historians. They describe Hitler's roots, his rise to power, why Germany succumbed to the dictator's diabolical politics, how he remade German society, how and why Hitler so easily conquered established European countries, and, finally, what led to the fall of the Nazi empire. What the book doesn't deal with in any detail is the Holocaust, although it is referred to briefly in a couple of the essays. An appendix with excerpts of primary documents written by Hitler and his supporters and opponents further illuminate the issues addressed in the main body of the book. A useful overview and cogent analysis of the forces that created and sustained Hitler's murderous regime.-Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego (c) Copyright 2010.
