Eberhard Jäckel

Translated by Herbert Arnold

ISBN 9780674404250

Publication date: 05/01/1981

Even the demonic Hitler had a comprehensive philosophy, and Eberhard Jäckel probes deeply into the dictator’s mind to determine how he viewed the world.


  • [Jäckel’s] critique of the self-contradictions historical research has brought upon itself by abandoning systematic analysis and relying instead on intuitive judgments and the obiter dicta of ex-Nazis such as Hermann Rauschning is cogent and convincing. So also is his analysis of the development of Hitler’s ideas from the ‘conventional foundations’ with which he began in 1920.

    —Geoffrey Barraclough, New York Review of Books
