9780195047417: The Ideological Origins of Nazi Imperialism

This study traces the evolution of imperialist ideology in Germany from Bismarck in the mid-19th century through Hitler and the Third Reich. Although much has been written about the virulently racist and anti-communist ideologies of the Nazi party, this is the first book to treat Nazi imperialism as a separate ideology and set it within a sturdy theoretical framework. Smith contends that Nazi imperialism represented the last, ambitious attempt to integrate two century-old ideologies--the elite, pro-industrial Weltpolitik and the popular-based, pro-agrarian Lebensraum--into a single system. In fact, Smith argues that it was largely the way in which the Nazis attempted to reconcile these contradictory ideologies that explains Germany's disastrous policies during World War II. This wide-ranging study also contributes to the debates over several other aspects of German history, including German military aims in World War II, the continuity--or discontinuity--of German policy from Bismarck to Hitler, and the relation between ideology and social-political life.

About the Author:

Woodruff D. Smith is at University of Texas, San Antonio.

From Library Journal:

Smith has written a scholarly and intelligent study of the nature and evolution of the ideologies of imperialism in Germany during the century leading up to Nazi expansionism in World War II. He identifies two distinct types or "aggregates" of imperialist ideas in German politics: a migrationist colonialism (later Lebensraum) and an economic imperialism (later Weltpolitik), both of which evolved in the Wilhelmine years and continued to influence policy through World War I, Weimar, and into the Nazi era. These ideologies of imperialism, though logically inconsistent, were followed in various forms by the Nazis, and culminated in the catastrophe of Hitler's war. This is an important, challenging, and difficult book, recommended for academic libraries and collections with a German emphasis. James B. Street, Santa Cruz P.L., Cal.
