Adolf Hitler was an unlikely leader – fuelled by hate, incapable of forming normal human relationships, unwilling to debate political issues – and yet he commanded enormous support. So how was it possible that Hitler became such an attractive figure to millions of people? That is the important question at the core of Laurence Rees’ new book. The Holocaust, the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, the outbreak of the Second World War – all these cataclysmic events and more can be laid at Hitler’s door. Hitler was a war criminal arguably without precedent in the history of the world. Yet, as many who knew him confirm, Hitler was still able to exert a powerful influence over the people who encountered him. In this fascinating book to accompany his new BBC series, the acclaimed historian and documentary maker Laurence Rees examines the nature of Hitler’s appeal, and reveals the role Hitler’s supposed ‘charisma’ played in his success. Rees’ previous work has explored the inner workings of the Nazi state in The Nazis: A Warning from History and the crimes they committed in Auschwitz: The Nazis and the Final Solution. The Charisma of Adolf Hitler is a natural culmination of twenty years of writing and research on the Third Reich, and a remarkable examination of the man and the mind at the heart of it all.

Few historical problems are more baffling in retrospect than the conundrum of how Hitler was able to rise to power in Germany and then command the German people ? many of whom had only marginal interest in or affiliation to Nazism ? and the Nazi state. It took Ian Kershaw ? author of the standard two-volume biography of Hitler ? to provide a truly convincing solution to this problem. Kershaw's model blends theory ? notably Max Weber's concept of ?charismatic leadership? ? with new archival research into the development of the Hitler ?cult? from its origins in the 1920s to its collapse in the face of the harsh realities of the latter stages of World War II. Kershaw's model also looks at dictatorship from an unusual angle: not from the top down, but from the bottom up, seeking to understand what ordinary Germans thought about their leader. Kershaw's broad approach is a problem-solving one. Most obviously, he actively interrogates his evidence, asking highly productive questions that lead him to fresh understandings and help generate solutions that are credibly rooted in the archives. Kershaw's theories also have application elsewhere; the model set out in The ?Hitler Myth? has been used to analyse other charismatic leaders, including several from ideologically-opposed backgrounds.

Between 1939 and 1945, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin were the two most powerful warlords the world had ever seen. At a micro level, they were very different: Hitler's charismatic leadership contrasted with Stalin's impersonal rule; Hitler's intransigence contrasted with Stalin's capacity to change his behaviour in response to events. But, as bestselling historian Laurence Rees shows, at a macro level, they were in fact different sides of the same coin, in their views on liberty and truth, and their ruthless attitudes to certain categories of people. Focusing on the war years, when they were in an alliance of sorts, before being adversaries with a kind of mutual grudging respect, Rees challenges long-held misconceptions about these two titans of history. He uses previously unpublished eyewitness testimony from soldiers, civilians, and those who knew both men personally - having met hundreds of people who lived under their rule - to show the ways in which Stalin and Hitler shaped the times they lived in, and in which the times shaped them. In doing so, he shows how understanding the life of one is essential for understanding the other. Based also on the immense amount of scholarship on the two dictators from the last thirty years, and access to key documents and diaries, this culmination of a lifetime's work is a masterpiece.

This book answers two fundamental questions about the Holocaust. How, and why, did it happen? Laurence Rees' masterpiece is revealing in three ways. First, it is based not only on the latest academic research, but also on 25 years of interviewing survivors and perpetrators, often at the sites of the events, many of whom have never had their words published before. Second, the book is not just about the Jews - the Nazis would have murdered many more non-Jews had they won the war - and not just about Germans. Third, as Rees shows, there was no single 'decision' to start the Holocaust - there was a series of escalations, most often when the Nazi leadership interacted with their grassroots supporters. Through a chronological narrative, featuring the latest historical research and compelling eyewitness testimony, this is the story of the worst crime in history.

"Character" has become a front-and-center topic in contemporary discourse, but this term does not have a fixed meaning. Character may be simply defined by what someone does not do, but a more active and thorough definition is necessary, one that addresses certain vital questions. Is character a singular characteristic of an individual, or is it composed of different aspects? Does character--however we define it--exist in degrees, or is it simply something one happens to have? How can character be developed? Can it be learned? Relatedly, can it be taught, and who might be the most effective teacher? What roles are played by family, schools, the media, religion, and the larger culture? This groundbreaking handbook of character strengths and virtues is the first progress report from a prestigious group of researchers who have undertaken the systematic classification and measurement of widely valued positive traits. They approach good character in terms of separate strengths-authenticity, persistence, kindness, gratitude, hope, humor, and so on-each of which exists in degrees. Character Strengths and Virtues classifies twenty-four specific strengths under six broad virtues that consistently emerge across history and culture: wisdom, courage, humanity, justice, temperance, and transcendence. Each strength is thoroughly examined in its own chapter, with special attention to its meaning, explanation, measurement, causes, correlates, consequences, and development across the life span, as well as to strategies for its deliberate cultivation. This book demands the attention of anyone interested in psychology and what it can teach about the good life.

"To many students of the twelve year period during which National Socialism dominated Germany, the name Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler is one frequently encountered by probably only vaguely comprehended. The ubiquity of this organization is immediately evident upon the perusal of any photographic collection dealing with Nazi Germany. In the pre-war years the young men of the Leibstandarte, magnificent physical specimens all, could be seen resplendent in their black dress uniforms with white trim at practically all state occasions, forming an imposing corridor of honor for Hitler and his entourage or perhaps goose-stepping with impeccable precision past a reviewing stand. Such were the facets of the Leibstandarte's function which most often met the public eye. This SS unit was and frequently still is referred to as 'Hitler's personal bodyguard, ' but this is grossly misleading. Scholars of Nazi Germany such as Hans Buchheim and George Stein have recognized in the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler an important step towards the acquisition by Hitler of totalitarian authority, for out of it grew the so-called Verfügungstruppe, a heavily armed branch of the SS beyond the Nazi Party and state and at Hitler's immediate disposal. Little has been done, however, in an effort to delve into the formative period of the Verfügungstruppe and to define their role in the context of the peacetime National Socialist State ... During World War II the Leibstandarte fought in the field as the senior unit of the Waffen-SS, and its commander, Sapp Dietrich, was lionized by the regime as the ideal of the National Socialist field commander. This study will provide only a brief summary of the combat role of the Leibstandarte with an effort at linking this final and best-known stage of its development with its birth and initial stages of growth"--Introduction.
