Review: "Because such evil lay at the heart of the National Socialist movement, its overwhelming rhetoric has often led to its negative characterization as propaganda. As Randall Bytwerk points out, however, that association was anything but negative in the minds of the leaders of the National Socialist movement. In their view, the clear, simplistic, and even one-sided presentation of information was necessary to effectively mobilize all elements of the German population to the National Socialist program." "Gathered here are thirteen of the key speeches of this historically significant movement, including Hitler's announcement of the party's reestablishment in 1925 following the unsuccessful Beer Hall Putsch, four addresses by Joseph Goebbels, the 1938 Kristallnacht speech by Julius Streicher, and four speeches drafted as models for party leaders' use on various public occasions." "Landmark Speeches of National Socialism is an important volume for students of rhetoric, World War II, Nazi Germany, and the Holocaust."--Jacket.
