About the Authors
  • Contending with Hitler is a distillation of recent scholarship on Germany's domestic resistance to the Nazi dictatorship. Consisting of twelve original essays, it sets forth the issues that specialists and laymen alike must keep in mind as they try to understand the nature and significance of this complex problem. Unlike most histories of the German resistance, this volume does not restrict its focus to well-known opposition factions such as the Kreisau Circle and the Twentieth of July conspiracy; rather, it includes investigations of resistance efforts by Jews, women, workers, and young people. The Socialist opposition is illuminated by the personal observations of former West German chancellor, Willy Brandt.

    • Hardback edition was widely reviewed
    • Hitler and the Nazis continue to be a subject of great interest
    • Willy Brandt, the former West German chancellor, is a contributor
