Book Censorship in Nazi Germany

Guenter Lewy

  • First full-scale study of German book censorship in the English language
  • By showing that the process of censorship was disorderly, it illustrates that the Third Reich was monolithic in theory but polycratic in practice
  • Throws new light on some of the major figures of the Nazi regime like Martin Bormann, Philipp Bouhler, Joseph Goebbels and Alfred Rosenberg
  • Describes intellectual life under the Nazi dictatorship
