Hitler Among the Germans
Hitler Among the Germans
By Rudolph Binion
Elsevier, 1976, 207 pp.

An intriguing, carefully researched psychohistorical essay relating Hitler's several traumas (a Jewish doctor's "poisoning" of his mother followed by his own gas poisoning in World War I) to his anti-Semitism and to his hold on the German people. A serious, if somewhat dogmatic, work that needs to be assessed in the light of historical and psychological scholarship.
