A future Nazism already has a history
HOW HAVE FEARS OF A FOURTH REICH AFFECTED OUR HISTORY?
Even before the Third Reich ended, there were fears (and for some in Germany, hopes) of a resurgent Nazism, not just among politicians but writers, academics, and people in the creative arts. Why? What ideas do thoughts of a Fourth Reich help us to articulate, and how have these thoughts changed? In his new book, Gavriel Rosenfeld charts the history of this unnerving topic as well as asking whether history can deal with pasts that haven't happened.
