The Hitler of History: Hitler's Biographers on Trial
Phoenix, 2002 - 279 Seiten
Since 1945 there have been over a hundred biographies of Hitler. What happens when so many people reinterpret the life of a single individual? Does Hitler emerge as a mythic anti-hero whose crimes and errors blur behind an aura of power and conquest? By making Hitler¿s biographers ¿ rather than Hitler himself ¿ the subject of inquiry, Lukacs reveals the contradictions that take us back to the true Hitler of history. By examining those ¿ like the controversial historian David Irving ¿ who have been involved in a `rehabilitation¿ of Hitler, Lukacs draws powerful conclusions about Hitler¿s differences from other monsters of history, such as Napoleon, Mussolini and Stalin.
