The Nazi Seizure of Power: The Experience of a Single German Town, 1922-1945
By William Sheridan Allen
Why this book?
It is important for Americans to understand why millions of Germans who were not violent antisemites and racists voted for the Nazis. Looking at the case of a typical German town, Allen shows that economics, culture wars, and fear for the future motivated middle-class Germans to vote for an extremist party – not because of its racism, but despite its racism.
