About the Authors
  • Science and technology under Hitler have always held a special fascination for historians, scientists, engineers, and the general public. Until now most books have focused on such obvious "perversions" as the "Nazi doctors" or the "German atom bomb." This book provides a more varied and balanced picture by including many different projects and disciplines, by including the period before and after the Third Reich, and by investigating "normal" as well as "perverted" sciences and technologies. Overall the volume offers the best study available of the consequential interaction of science and technology with National Socialism in Germany.

    • The first comprehensive study of the interaction between science and technology and the Nazi regime in Germany
    • Each essay makes a major contribution to the study of an individual scientific or technological subject before, during and after Hitler's rule
    • Mark Walker, the chief editor, is the leading world authority on Nazi Germany and the attempt to develop nuclear power

    "Overall the volume offers the best study available of the consequential interaction of science and technology with National Socialism in Germany." Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society

    "Here is a book that is timely and coherent. The editors are to be commended for bringing together chapters that speak to each other and explore similar questions. There is no doubt that these in part splendid essays will stimulate further discussion about what is modern about fascism." German Politics and Society

    "...Science, Technology and National Socialism is a particularly impressive collection of essays...the volume puts scientific mentalities and professional identities under the microscope." Roy Porter, TLS

    "This interesting and useful collection of sixteen essays covers a variety of technological projects and scientific developments during the National Socialist period in Germany....the book is well-researched and makes a valuable contribution to the history of science and technology under Nazism." J.D. Hunley, Technology and Culture

    "...totally absorbing..." The Guardian
