About the Author:


Richard J. Evans is Regius Professor of History at Cambridge University. Knighted in 2012 for his services to scholarship, he is the author of many prizewinning and bestselling books, including his acclaimed study of the Third Reich, whose three volumes have been translated into twelve languages.

Review:


"[Evans is] one of the English-speaking world's foremost historians of modern Germany...in these essays, as in so much of his scholarship, he is right on the mark." --The Financial Times


"Evans' careful discussion serves as a reminder of the naiveté of thinking that dictators have no popular support in the countries they control, or that removing them is easy. But he also shows how unfair it is to assume that everyone (or even the majority of people) in a dictatorship is responsible for the regimes' actions. Collective guilt and collective innocence are appealing myths, but the realities of power are much messier." --The Pacific Standard


"Mr. Evans may now be a rather grand pillar of the historical establishment - a former Regius Professor of History at Cambridge University, 'Sir Richard' since he was knighted for services to scholarship in 2012 - but he shows no signs of settling into comfortable eminence. He thinks hard about what history is and how it is done... Mr. Evans has something of interest or importance to say on almost any aspect of [the Third Reich] that might come up." --The Wall Street Journal


"[A] lucid and informative essay collection." --The Jewish Daily Forward

Book Description Little, Brown Book Group, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this fascinating and enlightening collection of essays, one of the most important historians of our time reflects on the ways our understanding of Nazi Germany have been transformed in the twenty-first century. Richard Evans examines new historical perspectives on the Third Reich, such as showing how it is increasingly viewed in a broader international - even global - context, as part of the age of imperialism. He investigates how Nazi policies in Europe drew on Hitler s image of the American colonisation of the Great Plains, how companies like Volkswagen and Krupp operated on a global scale and - perhaps most controversial of all - how historians have come to see the Holocaust not as a unique historical event but as a genocide with parallels and similarities in other countries and at other times. THE THIRD REICH IN HISTORY AND MEMORY explores how these new perspectives have brought dividends, but also offers a critical perspective on the ways they are changing our perception of the period. THE THIRD REICH IN HISTORY AND MEMORY, in Richard Evans characteristically compelling style, shows us that memory has to be subjected to the close scrutiny of history if it is to stand up to examination, while history s implications for collective cultural memories of Nazism must be spelled out with precision as well as with passion.
