Synopsis: In this chilling psychohistory, Dr. George Victor, a distinguished psychotherapist who evaluates personality disorders, examines Hitler's disturbed psyche. He explains how Hitler forced an entire nation to advance his dark, personal agenda and how his disastrous wartime decisions satisfied his psychological needs. Victor draws surprising new conclusions about a man who came as close as any to being the embodiment of evil.

From the Publisher: "Any student of World War II knows that Adolf Hitler was a complex and demon-ridden man. Victor, a Jewish psychotherapist dealing with personality disorders, argues that Hitler's troubled pathology has never been seriously studied because of fears that he might emerge as a guiltless and even sympathetic victim of forces beyond his control. In this painstaking analysis of Hitler's family background and childhood, supported by exhaustive study of his written and spoken utterances, the author makes a convincing case of how the German leader came to be deeply disturbed and shows how these findings manifested themselves in Hitler's social philosophy, leadership style, and, eventually, his fateful policy decisions. . . . This is a fascinating and extremely lucid journey into the mind of one of the last century's most pivotal figures." -- Library Journal

"We know what Adolf Hitler did but still puzzle over why. Dr. George Victor comes as close to providing the answer as we are ever likely to get in this penetrating psychological profile of the Nazi demigod." -- Joseph E. Persico, Author of Nuremburg and Piercing the Reich

Hitler: The Pathology of Evil is a serious book that merits serious consideration. George Victor's interpretations of Hitler's puzzling wartime decisions, for example, are unique." -- Eugene Davidson, Author of The Unmaking of Adolf Hitler

"The research . . . is thorough, the analysis is deep, and the resluts are of compelling interest . . . . Victor has drawn on child development, experimental and social psychology, psychoanalysis, sociology, and anthropology. His blending of these social sciences with history is masterly, resulting in a deeper penetration than any work I know." -- John Laffin, Author of Hitler Warned Us: The Nazi's Plan for a Master Race

"Highly recommended." -- Choice

"Enables readers to view history from a new perspective," -- Publishers Weekly
