An examination of the narrative strategies employed in the most dangerous book of the twentieth century and a reflection on totalitarian literature. Hitler's Mein Kampf was banned in Germany for almost seventy years, kept from being reprinted by the accidental copyright holder, the Bavarian Ministry of Finance. In December 2015, the first German edition of Mein Kampf since 1946 appeared, with Hitler's text surrounded by scholarly commentary apparently meant to act as a kind of cordon sanitaire. And yet the dominant critical assessment (in Germany and elsewhere) of the most dangerous book of the twentieth century is that it is boring, unoriginal, jargon-laden, badly written, embarrassingly rabid, and altogether ludicrous. (Even in the 1920s, the consensus was that the author of such a book had no future in politics.) How did the unreadable Mein Kampf manage to become so historically significant? In this book, German literary scholar Albrecht Koschorke attempts to explain the power of Hitler's book by examining its narrative strategies. Koschorke argues that Mein Kampf cannot be reduced to an ideological message directed to all readers. By examining the text and the signals that it sends, he shows that we can discover for whom Hitler strikes his propagandistic poses and who is excluded. Koschorke parses the borrowings from the right-wing press, the autobiographical details concocted to make political points, the attack on the Social Democrats that bleeds into an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, the contempt for science, and the conscious attempt to trigger outrage. A close reading of National Socialism's definitive text, Koschorke concludes, can shed light on the dynamics of fanaticism. This lesson of Mein Kampf still needs to be learned.
In Mein Kampf, Hitler used the main thesis of "the Jewish peril", which posits a Jewish conspiracy to gain world leadership.The narrative describes the process by which he became increasingly antisemitic and militaristic, especially during his years in Vienna. He speaks of not having met a Jew until he arrived in Vienna, and that at first his attitude was liberal and tolerant. When he first encountered the anti-semitic press, he says, he dismissed it as unworthy of serious consideration. Later he accepted the same anti-semitic views, which became crucial in his program of national reconstruction of Germany.Mein Kampf has also been studied as a work on political theory. For example, Hitler announces his hatred of what he believed to be the world's two evils: Communism and Judaism.During his work, Hitler blamed Germany's chief woes on the parliament of the Weimar Republic, the Jews, and Social Democrats, as well as Marxists, though he believed that Marxists, Social Democrats, and the parliament were all working for Jewish interests. He announced that he wanted to completely destroy the parliamentary system, believing it to be corrupt in principle, as those who reach power are inherent opportunists.
Mein Kampf: A Descriptive Bibliography is the most thorough, complete and detailed analysis and description of every edition of Hitler's Mein Kampf ever published. It is destined to be the benchmark for the study of the publication history and analysis of one of the world's most important and influential books. With over 300 illustrations and nearly 800 pages in one volume, this study is long overdue and long awaited. Edited by Stephen R. Pastore, an experienced bibliographer and book collector with co-authors Andreas Stanik and Steven M. Brewster, the effects of this study will be far-reaching and will increase in importance for decades to come. REVIEWS From Publishers Weekly At long last someone of note and experience has tackled the extremely difficult job of describing perhaps one of the most influential volumes in all of human history, Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf. Pastore seems more up to the difficult task than most. He takes a bibliographer's point of view with no agenda, no side, no bias to discuss not only the creation of the book but, most importantly, a description in unparalleled terms of the impact on the history of the Twentieth Century that this book has and will continue to have so long as Man walks the Earth. No one will doubt the depth and breadth of this meticulous and difficult study. Certainly, it is the end-all for studies of Mein Kampf and we should all be thankful to the author and his co-authors Brewster and Stanik for taking on a thankless job for the benefit of all.

The unpublished followup to Hitler's autobiography never published during the dictator's lifetime includes details of his vision for a foreign policy based on continual aggression that would inevitably result in a confrontation with the United States, which he saw as a major stumbling block to his plans.
Edgar Trevelyan Stratford Dugdale (c. 1872 – 14 October 1964) was a translator, completing the first English translation of Mein Kampf. The first English translation of Mein Kampf was an abridgment by Edgar Dugdale, who started work on it in 1931, at the prompting of his wife Blanche. When he learned that the London publishing firm of Hurst & Blackett had secured the rights to publish an abridgment in the United Kingdom, he offered it gratis in April 1933. However, a local Nazi party representative insisted that the translation be further abridged before publication, so it was held back from the public until 13 October 1933, although excerpts were allowed to run in The Times in late July. In America, Houghton Mifflin secured the rights to the Dugdale abridgment on 29 July 1933. The only differences between the American and British versions are that the title was translated as My Struggle in the UK and My Battle in America; and that Dugdale is credited as translator in the U.S. edition, while the British version withheld his name.
Mein Kampf, 'my struggle', however, it gives more about the saga of his life than those that of his struggling days. When he served his sentence Adolf Hitler wrote the first volume of his Mein Kampf. He was born in 1889 and from there he started to experience all the ups and downs of his life until his last. The Austrian-born German Nazi leader found Nazi Party in Germany in 1919 and became the chancellor in 1933. His invasion of Poland in 1939 led to the outbreak of the second World War. His implementation of anti-Semitic policies led to the Holocaust. When he came to the power.
Adolf Hitler, the leader of the Nazi Party and person responsible for the death of more than 6,000,000 Jews during World War II, wrote Mein Kampf in prison after his failed putsch in 1923. In it, he details his political ideology and future plans. An anti-Semite and all around evil person, his text is nevertheless an important part of World War II history. It was a bestselling guidebook that directed the activities and indoctrination of SS soldiers and members of other now infamous groups, and it is therefore of interest to anyone researching War II history and the twisted thoughts upon which Nazi activities were based.
For decades scholars have pored over Hitler's autobiographical journey/political treatise, debating if Mein Kampf has genocidal overtones and arguably led to the Holocaust. For the first time, Hitler's Mein Kampf and the Holocaust sees celebrated international scholars analyse the book from various angles to demonstrate how it laid the groundwork for the Shoah through Hitler's venomous attack on the Jews in his text. Split into three main sections which focus on 'contexts', 'eugenics' and 'religion', the book reflects carefully on the point at which the Fuhrer's actions and policies turn genocidal during the Third Reich and whether Mein Kampf presaged Nazi Germany's descent into genocide. There are contributions from leading academics from across the United States and Germany, including Magnus Brechtken, Susannah Heschel and Nathan Stoltzfus, along with totally new insights into the source material in light of the 2016 German critical edition of Mein Kampf. Hitler's views on Marxism, violence, and leadership, as well as his anti-Semitic rhetoric are examined in detail as you are taken down the disturbing path from a hateful book to the Holocaust.
Mein Kampf is perhaps the only notable work written in two volumes by Adolf Hitler, in 1924. Hitler was arrested when he took out a mass demonstration in favour of national unity for the formation of a socialist German state. He was tried by the People’s Court in Munich and subsequently, imprisoned for thirteen months where he wrote the first volume. The second volume was written after he was released. This book will give you an insight into one of the greatest tyrant of this century, his political ideals, beliefs and motivation, and his struggle to consolidate Germany into one great nation.
