"Since the end of the twentieth century, our understanding of Nazi Germany has been transformed in a variety of ways. In this collected volume, Richard J. Evans offers a critical commentary on that transformation, exploring how major changes in perspective have informed research and writing on the Third Reich in the last two decades.The essays, drawn from Evans' writings over the last two decades, move from the genesis of Nazism, through its rise to political power and its economic and political intricacies, to postwar Germany, considering at each point the suppression, reappropriation, and survival of memory. Evans also explores the 'global turn' in historical studies in recent years, revealing how it has broadened our understanding of the Third Reich in an international context; considers the development of research in the area of Nazi society, particularly in the understanding of Nazi Germany as a political system based on popular approval and consent; and discusses the growing focus on postwar Germany and its subterranean continuities with the Nazi era"--
