9780820459097: Hitler's Voice: The Volkischer Beobachter, 1920-1933

What did the Nazis inform the readership of their national newspaper about before 1933? How did they portray the origins and development of the Nazi Party and its specialist organisations at the micro and macro level before the Nazi seizure of power in 1933? What type of propaganda did the Nazis use before 1933 to secure support from specific elements of German society, such as the working class, the peasantry, the urban Mittelstand, and women? What were the main themes of Nazi propaganda projected in its official newspaper before 1933? This study provides the reader with a detailed insight into the content of the Völkischer Beobachter or ‘Peoples’ Observer’, through the use of speeches, reports, articles and various other types of material taken from the Nazi Party’s official national newspaper.

About the Author:

The Author: Detlef Mühlberger read history at King’s College, London. He obtained his doctorate at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, London. He has published on various aspects of the history of Nazism.


«In short, these two volumes provide a mass of material, most of it relatively inaccessible, which will be of considerable value to all those interested in the rise of the Nazi party to power. The documents are well chosen and the editing is impeccable. Mühlberger has placed all students of Nazism in his debt.» (Jeremy Noakes, European History Quarterly)
«Because of the importance of the ‘Völkischer Beobachter’ as a primary source for National Socialist ideology, ‘Hitler's Voice’ will be essential for those researchers of National Socialism and the Weimar Republic who could not readily access these materials in the past. ‘Hitler's Voice’ is highly recommended.» (Michael C. Wallo, H-Net Reviews)
«Mühlberger erschließt dem des Deutschen unkundigen Leser erstmals mit seinen Übersetzungen ein umfangreiches Quellenmaterial, dem jeweils eine kenntnisreiche Einführung vorangestellt ist.» (Gerhard Hay, Germanistik)
«‘Hitler's Voice: The Völkischer Beobachter, 1920-1933’ may, nay, should, be taken in hand by a wide range of scholars and students, from those in German studies to others in history, political culture, and even media studies. Given the previous unavailability of these documents, they are indispensable additions to any university library.» (Richard John Ascárate, Medienwissenschaft)
«...an invaluable addition to scholarship, and one that at a stroke makes available a major - and almost entirely neglected - component of pre-1933 Nazi ideology, propaganda, and intentions for Germany.» (Matthew Feldman, Totalitarian Movements and Political Religions)
«Wer künftig für Forschung und Lehre nach Quellen zur Geschichte der NSDAP vor 1933 sucht, muss Detlef Mühlberger für seine umfangreiche Sammlungs- und Aufbereitungsarbeit dankbar sein.» (Lars Jockheck, H-Soz-u-Kult)
