When Hitler's war ended in 1945, the war over Hitler--who he really was, what gave birth to his unique evil--had just begun. Hitler did not escape the bunker in Berlin but, half a century later, he has managed to escape explanation in ways both frightening and profound. Explaining Hitler is an extraordinary quest, an expedition into the war zone of Hitler theories. This is a passionate, enthralling book that illuminates what Hitler explainers tell us about Hitler, about the explainers, and about ourselves.… (mere)

XPLAINING HITLER:THE SEARCH FOR THE ORIGINS OF HIS EVILS BY RON ROSENBAUM takes the reader back to the beginning; Hitlers grandmother, a servant girl perportibly raped by her Jewish employer. Hitlers father's birth, half Jewish and finally Hitler himself. His past, his future and his early life and the theories of why and how Hitler came to loathe the Jews and determined that the extermination of them was necessary.

The book though weighty,over 400 pages, and loaded with various authors and theories gives the readers a peak back in time to try to reason out why Hitler hated the Jews so much that he and the Nazi's slaughtered millions. The amount of information can be a little overwhelming but if you are interested in the history this is a pretty good source. ( )

Lungo, complesso, a tratti veramente pesante e, per me, non sempre comprensibile. Più che un libro su Hitler, uno studio attorno a Hitler che si occupa delle spesso sostanzialmente diverse interpretazioni che di questo enigma storico e umano sono state date dal 1945 in qua. Alla fine si resta, probabilmente, con molte più domande di quante non se ne avessero all'inizio della lettura e con solo qualche abbozzo di risposta ma questo è, probabilmente, l'effetto che fanno i libri veramente importanti. Quattro stelle a lui, due a me. ( )

Dove e quando ha inizio la vera storia di Adolf Hitler? Rosenbaum affronta tutti gli interrogativi che, a partire dall'immediato dopoguerra, hanno diviso storici, filosofi e psicologi, animati dalla volontà di scandagliare la psiche dell'uomo che ha incarnato il Male del XX secolo (fonte: Google Books)

Didn't read all of this ( it's about a third too long ) The introduction pretty much covers the whole idea, the rest is just details. ( )

Years ago, at a flat-warming party, I was taken to task for having a biography of the religious fundamentalist Ian Paisley - the false assumption being that having a biography of someone means sharing/validating their beliefs or actions. No fan of Paisley, I was interested to know more about him to understand how so many people on the small island of Ireland could support his bizarre ideology (he is on record declaring that the Pope is the Anti-Christ - a popular belief in the 17th Century, but slightly less so in the 21st).

Having a book about Hitler on your bookshelf is, in the same vein, problematic and so much more so given the growth of neo-fascism and holocaust denial Worldwide. Rosenbaum's book, though is worth any embarassment its presence on your bookshelf may cause.

The reality is that this book is far more about the historians who have written about Hitler than it is about the dictator. It's more about the philosophical questions that history writing raises than it is about the chronology of fascism.

Particularly fascinating are his interviews with Holocaust-denial poster boy David Irving, and that with George Steiner where they discuss his controversial novel [book:The Portage of A.H to San Cristobal], but the whole book is brilliantly conceived and executed. ( )

If you thought the one historical figure people could reach a consensus on was Adolf Hitler, you'd be very wrong. Given the growing relativization of history writing and the constant intramural infighting in academia, given the growing preference of scholars for seeing history as a product of abstract social forces rather than the acts of individual men, historians have left us not with one Hitler, but a multitude of Hitlers.

With "Explaining Hitler," he has written a book that does for Hitler studies what David Lehman's superb book "Signs of the Times" did for deconstruction: he has written an exciting, lucid book informed by two qualities in increasingly short supply in academic circles: old-fashioned moral rigor and plain old common sense.

The more I learn about Hitler, the harder I find it to explain. — Alan Bullock
There will never be an adequate explanation. . . . The closer one gets to explicability the more one realizes nothing can make Hitler explicable. — Emil Fackenheim
Hitler is explicable in principle, but that does not mean that he has been explained. — Yehuda Bauer
He [God] owes me answers to many questions. — Holocaust survivor at Auschwitz, 1985

In the realm of Hitler explanations, it's come to be called "the survival myth," and though no one believes it now, it struck a chord in the post-war popular imagination.
