    Book details


Like its predecessor, one of the most popular volumes in the 'European History Series', this second edition provides a unique interpretative comparison of the economics, propaganda, culture, and education and healthcare systems of all three forms of European totalitarianism. Punctuated by vivid portraits of the dictators' youths, early careers, personal relationships, management styles, and cults of personality, the second edition of this fascinating book features a greatly expanded photographic essay as well as a consideration of the very latest scholarship. This succinct and adept description of probably the most frightening phenomenon of the twentieth century remains ideal for use in courses on German, European, and World History. Its broad interdisciplinary scope also makes it an excellent choice of supplementary reading for courses in Government, International Relations, economics, sociology, women's studies, and ethics.

Review Text

  • By Shane on 15 February 2004

    This is a great overview of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. In this book Pauley takes the reader through the evolution of the totalitarian dictators. He starts of by defining the terms under which each ideology fell: Nazism, Marxism-Leninism, and Fascism. From here he shows the reader how each personality gained, maintained and relinquished power. The outline of the chapters adds to readability as well as allowing for comparison and contrast of the three previously mentioned persons. This is an important topic not only to learn about the absolute control that these three wielded, but how they managed to manipulate the masses into not only following them but in some cases actually loving them; as scary as that may seem. There are important lessons to be learned in this study and Pauley has some good insight to get one thinking about them.

    A note for parents; I have not read this book but my son, in the first year of A level history, has found this book very useful, being extremely informative and good to read for pleasure (and he does not read unless he has to!) His teacher commented he must have been reading a good book because of his informed comments on the subject.

    This book helped me alot to prepare for my History A level exam on totalitarianism. It was well written and explained the concept well by using Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini as examples.
