Format: Paperback
The only reason I don't give this book a 5-Star rating is because it is somewhat of a dry read, more along the lines of what a policy wonk would enjoy, with detailed descriptions of laws and statutes. While I highly appreciated those as a researcher, in the back of my head I kept on thinking that what this author was describing one of the liveliest generations of European actors, painters, musicians, and performers. In fact, I would recommend reading this book and watching the movie Swing Kids in order to get a more personal account of a subject matter that demands an emotional connection.

Art, Ideology, and Economics in Nazi Germany: The Reich Chambers of Music, Theater, and the Visual Arts by Alen Steinweiss provides an in-depth account of how German artists and their trade unions were amongst Hitler's most ardent and enthusiastic supporters, namely because of the income redistribution policies that supported their personal desires.

Format: Paperback
From 1933 to 1945, the Reich Chamber of Culture exercised a profound influence over hundreds of thousands of German artists and entertainers. Alan Steinweis focuses on the fields of music, theater, and the visual arts in this first major study of Nazi cultural administration, examining a complex pattern of interaction among leading Nazi figures, German cultural functionaries, ordinary artists, and consumers of culture. He gives special attention to Nazi efforts to purge the arts of Jews and other so-called undesirables.
