HubrisBook - 1999
From the publisher's descrpition: "Ian Kershaw's Hitler brings us closer than ever before to the character of this bizarre misfit's ascent from a Viennese shelter for the indigent to his uncontested rule over Germany, a nation that had tried and rejected democracy in the crippling aftermath of World War I. With extraordinary vividness, Kershaw recreates the settings that made Hitler's rise possible: the virulent anti-Semitism of prewar Vienna, the crucible of a war with immense casualties, the toxic nationalism that gripped Bavaria in the 1920's, the undermining of the Weimar Republic by extremists of the Right and the Left, the hysteria that accompanied Hitler's seizure of power in 1933, and the brutal attacks by his storm troopers on the Jews and other condemned enemies of the Aryan race."
