Format: Hardcover
A number of years ago, I read "The imperialist imagination: German colonialism and its legacy," by Sara Friedrichsmeyer, Sara Lennox, and Susanne Zantop, eds. I was struck by one particular chapter by Tina Campt, Pascal Grosse, and Yara-Colette Lemke-Muniz de Faria titled "Blacks, Germans, and the Politics of Imperial Imagination, 1920-60." To that point, I had never seen a postwar analysis of race in German history. I found the chapter fascinating, and hoped I would have the pleasure of coming across other books that took the same scholarly approach. After the Nazi Racial State is an astoundingly good read. To begin with, its treatment of race is thought provoking. Rather than looking at race on a binary basis of color, the authors cast a wider net and view it from cultural, religious and ethic perspectives; indeed, you almost have to, considering the ways in which race was defined during the Third Reich. Mixed race children of occupation are covered, as are Jewish Holocaust survivors and Turkish guest workers. The research is thorough, the writing enjoyable (though Eley still takes me a while to wrap my head around), and the topic is sorely needed. If you are a professor, assign this book. If you are a student, read it. If you just love history and want to examine an area that hasn't been given nearly enough attention to date, buy it.
