About this Item

Mein Kampf, the autobiography of Adolf Hitler, provides a peek into the mind of a man who literally single handedly managed to change the course of history, wounding the psyche of a people for generations to come and marring the memories of a race for all of time. Giving excellent insight into the maniacal ideologies and visions with which Hitler shook the world, Mein Kampf is an exploration of the Holocaust from the other side of the genocide, from Hitlers perspective, that is. One of the most widely published, circulated and read books in the world, Mein Kampf is at once a chilling, a revealing and an intriguing foray into the inner mental mechanics of a man whose legacy continues to weigh down history even today.

About this title

Synopsis:

Mein Kampf, the autobiography of Adolf Hitler, provides a peek into the mind of a man who literally single-handedly managed to change the course of history, wounding the psyche of a people for generations to come and marring the memories of a race for all time.

Review:

The angry ranting of an obscure, small-party politician, the first volume of Mein Kampf was virtually ignored when it was originally published in 1925. Likewise the second volume, which appeared in 1926. The book details Hitler's childhood, the "betrayal" of Germany in World War I, the desire for revenge against France, the need for lebensraum for the German people, and the means by which the National Socialist party can gain power. It also includes Hitler's racist agenda and his glorification of the "Aryan" race. The few outside the Nazi party who read it dismissed it as nonsense, not believing that anyone could--or would--carry out its radical, terrorist programs. As Hitler and the Nazis gained power, first party members and then the general public were pressured to buy the book. By the time Hitler became chancellor of the Third Reich in 1933, the book stood atop the German bestseller lists. Had the book been taken seriously when it was first published, perhaps the 20th century would have been very different.

Beyond the anger, hatred, bigotry, and self-aggrandizing, Mein Kampf is saddled with tortured prose, meandering narrative, and tangled metaphors (one person was described as "a thorn in the eyes of venal officials"). That said, it is an incredibly important book. It is foolish to think that the Holocaust could not happen again, especially if World War II and its horrors are forgotten. As an Amazon.com reader has pointed out, "If you want to learn about why the Holocaust happened, you can't avoid reading the words of the man who was most responsible for it happening." Mein Kampf, therefore, must be read as a reminder that evil can all too easily grow. --Sunny Delaney
