As an introduction to Hitler's Germany, there are few books to rival Ian Kershaw's incisive exploration of the major themes and debates relating to Nazism. In recognition of the rapid developments in the historiography of the Third Reich in recent years, this new edition examines the ways in which the termination of the German Democratic Republic's historiographical tradition and the aftermath of German unification in general are affecting perspectives on the place of the Nazi dictatorship in German history. The author also takes the opportunity to examine an important area not represented in earlier editions - resistance to the regime within Germany - suggesting ways of approaching this still most contentious of issues.
