Synopsis:
“Force[s] even the most sophisticated to rethink and rework their ideas of how images work in the world.”— School Library Journal



This acclaimed examination of the most powerful symbol ever created is now available in paperback. The rise and fall of the swastika, and its mysteries and misunderstandings, are fully explained and explored. Readers will be captivated by the twists and turns of the symbol’s fortunes, from its pre-Nazi religious and commercial uses, to the Nazi appropriation and misuse of the form, to its contemporary applications as both a racist and an apolitical logo. In a new afterword, author Steven Heller discusses the controversy around ideas to ban the symbol and public reaction to the book since it was first published. This is a classic story, masterfully told, about how one graphic symbol can endure and influence culture for generations.



• Traces the history of the swastika, from religious symbol to reviled symbol


• More than 175 illustrations


• Powerful examination of the impact of one graphic symbol on society
