Summary
  • "Was Hitler a moral aberration or a man of his people? Jay Gonen contends that Hitler possessed an uncanny ability to read the masses correctly and guide them with "new" ideas that were merely reflections of what the people already believed. These notions grew from the general fabric of German culture in the years following the humiliation and defeat of World War I, a time when the masses were particularly susceptible to Hitler's promised utopian state. The reality of his vision, however, would preempt family autonomy and private action, creating a war machine designed to breed infantile soldiers brainwashed for sacrifice. To achieve that aim, Hitler unleashed barbaric forces whose utopian features were the very aspects of the state that made it most cruel. Book jacket."--Jacket
  • "Was Hitler a moral aberration or a man of his people? This topic has been hotly debated in recent years, and now Jay Gonen brings new answers to the debate using a psychohistorical perspective, contending that Hitler reflected the psyche of many Germans of his time." "Like any charismatic leader, Hitler was an expert scanner of the Zeitgeist. He possessed an uncanny ability to read the masses correctly and guide them with "new" ideas that were merely reflections of what the people already believed. Gonen argues that Hitler's notions grew from the general fabric of German culture in the years following World War I. Hitler's success with the masses was the result of the German response to the humiliation and defeat they suffered in that war. Basing his work in the role of ideologies in group psychology, Gonen exposes the psychological underpinnings of Nazi Germany's desire to expand its living space and exterminate Jews."--BOOK JACKET
