9780882952697: Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini: Totalitarianism in the Twentieth Century

Rising to a great challenge in this remarkable study, Bruce Pauley compares the origins, development, and demise of all three forms of European totalitarianism, explaining why the old regimes that preceded the dictatorships failed, how the totalitarian movements arose, and how they captured, consolidated, and eventually plummeted from power.
Although its vivid portraits of the dictators' youths, early careers, relationships with women, management styles, and cults of personality–that they and their propaganda machines crafted–are certain to fascinate all readers, Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini is much more than a triple biography; it is a unique, interpretive comparison of the economics, culture, education, and health-care systems of all three dictatorships. While more conventional subjects such as diplomacy and war are by no means neglected, Professor Pauley goes further to explore the regimes' treatment of women, young people, and their terroristic oppression of religious institutions and minorities.

Review:

Praise for previous editions:

"Pauley fashions a very readable, concise narrative—neither historical essay, textbook, nor monograph—of use to the student in a modern European history course or to the educated general reader. ...The author of significant books on Austrian National Socialism and anti-Semitism, Pauley deserves thanks for writing a first-rate work of synthesis for the general audience." (German Studies Reviews, July 1999)
