This important, newly revised, study by Dr. Wesley carefully and studiously contradicts Goldhagen's Claim that an innate anti-Semitism of the German people evoked the Holocaust. It concisely describes the economic and political circumstances which brought Hitler most of his votes. It further describes the treachery used by Hitler to become dictator, disarming Germany's anti-Fascists in practically a single night and eventually subjugated 30 million people in 19 European countries. Dr. Wesley, a Holocaust survivor, describes the situation in Germany not only from his usual methodical and scholarly approach, but also from his eyewitness perspective. His emphasis on Hitler's use of terror and fear as key tools of everyday control is in striking contrast to those who see limitless irrational violence as the Nazi norm.
Professor Wesley draws from his extensive teaching career to offer a personal view of history, practice, fads and fallacies of the science of the mind. Told with charming candor, this is a must read for future students to get wise, for present students to get better grades and for the erstwhile students to get a laugh.
