Lying About Hitler : History, Holocaust, and the David Irving Trial
by Richard J. Evans
Writes Anthony Morris: According to one statistic quoted by Lipstadt, more US citizens "believe that Elvis Presley is alive than ... believe the Holocaust didn't happen"; but even this statistic acknowledges that Holocaust-denial is alive and well in the hearts and minds of people who are not confined to insane asylums, and who perhaps even have an IQ which exceeds their shoe size.

Adolf Hitler
by John Toland
Based on extensive research through original documents, diaries, notes, photographs, and over 300 personal interviews with people directly involved in Hitler's public and private life including his secretary Tradul Junge, his adjutants Max Wunsche and Richard Schultze, and Eva Braun's best friend, this work is regarded as the definitive biography of the man described by some as the personification of evil.

Hitler & Geli
by Ronald Hayman
Few people know of the affair Adolf Hitler had with his niece, Geli Raubal. The couple shared a strangely intense, passionate relationship, but it was always dogged by Hitler's intolerance, his chauvinistic attitude to womanhood and his possessive jealousy. In 1931, aged 23, Geli Raubal was found dead in the Munich flat she shared with Hitler, his revolver on the floor and an unfinished letter on the table. Hitler was shattered by his niece's death, and for the rest of his life couldn't speak...

Hitler: 1889-1936: Hubris
by Ian Kershaw

Noted for his excellent structural explanation of the Third Reich's political culture in The Hitler Myth, eminent historian Ian Kershaw shifts approach in this innovative biography of the Nazi tyrant. The first of a two-volume study, Hubris is far from a simple rehearsal of "great man" history, impressively exploring the historical forces that transformed a shiftless Austrian daydreamer into a dictator with immense power. 

In his forthright introduction, Kershaw acknowledges that, as a committed social historian, he did not include biography in his original intellectual plans. However, his "growing preoccupation" with the structures of Nazi domination pushed him toward questions about Hitler's place and considerable authority within that system. He argues that the sources for Hitler's power must be sought not only in the dictator's actions but also (and more importantly) in the social circumstances of a nation that allowed him to overstep all institutional and moral barriers. In a comprehensive treatment of Hitler's life and times up through the remilitarization of the Rhineland in 1936, Kershaw draws from documents recently made available from Russian archives and benefits from a rigorous source criticism that has discredited many records formerly understood to be reliable. Hubris thus supplants Alan Bullock's classic Hitler: A Study in Tyranny as the definitive account of a man who, with characteristic smugness, indicated that it was a divinely inspired history that made him: "I go with the certainty of a sleep walker along a path laid out for me by Providence." Kershaw's penetrating analysis of how such a certain path could emerge from the dire circumstances of post World War I Germany is the abiding strength of Hubris. --James Highfill -

Hitler: 1937-1945: Nemesis
by Ian Kershaw
George VI thought him a "damnable villain," and Neville Chamberlain found him not quite a gentleman; but, to the rest of the world, Adolf Hitler has come to personify modern evil to such an extent that his biographers always have faced an unenviable task. The two more renowned biographies of Hitler--by Joachim C. Fest ( Hitler) and by Alan Bullock ( Hitler: A Study in Tyranny)--painted a picture of individual tyranny which, in the words of A.J.P. Taylor, left Hitler guilty and every other German innocent. Decades of scholarship on German society under the Nazis have made that verdict look dubious; so, the modern biographer of Hitler must account both for his terrible mindset and his charismatic appeal. In the second and final volume of his mammoth biography of Hitler--which covers the climax of Nazi power, the reclamation of German-speaking Europe, and the horrific unfolding of the final solution in Poland and Russia--Ian Kershaw manages to achieve both of these tasks. Continuing where Hitler: Hubris 1889-1936 left off, the epic Hitler: Nemesis 1937-1945 takes the reader from the adulation and hysteria of Hitler's electoral victory in 1936 to the obsessive and remote "bunker" mentality that enveloped the Führer as Operation Barbarossa (the attack on Russia in 1942) proved the beginning of the end. Chilling, yet objective. A definitive work. --Miles Taylor -

The Hitler of History
by John Lukacs
The horrible life and work of Adolf Hitler have long raised puzzling questions for historians: How could the putatively civilized German nation allow a leader to plunge it into murderous barbarism? Why did the rest of Europe not put a stop to Hitler's rise before Germany could amass imperial power? How did Hitler transform bourgeois anti-Semitism into the Holocaust? John Lukacs addresses these and many other questions in this book of essays on the many problems Hitler and his regime present to historians. He assesses the contemporary, too-abundant literature, and makes some surprising and controversial evaluations.

Mein Kampf
by Adolf Hitler
Translated into "My Struggle", this book offers a look into the hateful mind of the century's most evil figure. Released in English in 1933, when many around the world were looking for clues about the rise of the German fascist, militaristic regime, it stands today as a historical document. We can see Hitler's vision of a unified Germany, his hatred of the Jews and his thoughts on the power of the state. One could be tempted to dismiss it as the musings of a madman, but civilized societies should remain mindful of Hitler's power to corrupt and pay attention to his words in order to be certain that they - or ones like them - aren't used to influence again
