Book Description

The performance of the German economy under the Nazi regime has been the subject of intense academic debate. Originally published by Macmillan in 1982, this fully revised and updated edition of a highly regarded survey argues that the war preparation was ultimately incompatible with long-term economic recovery.

This is the model book, it is well written, very informative, basic, and easy to read. I find the description on the back cover of the book to be very accurate. From the back cover "The books, all written by a recognized authority in the subject, are intended for students approaching a topic for the first time, and for their teachers". As a matter of fact this book is one of a series of books titled New Studies in Economic and Social History. The author covers everything, though briefly, about the Nazi economic recovery and war on unemployment. Nazi work creation, rearmament, and control of the economy are examples of the topics that are covered in this book. Although it is short it does its job well and it earns its keep. If you are looking to go more in-depth Hitler's Economy: Nazi work creation programs, 1933-1936 by Dan P. Silverman covers the subject far better.

Overy has provided a very nice look at the Nazi economic recovery in the period from just before Hitler's coming to power to the beginning of Hitler's most aggressive foreign policy moves. I used this book as a minor source in research for a major 30+ page history paper on the Nazi economy and foreign policy. While too short to be something to rely upon, it is a fine introduction by an excellent historian. Good data is provided as well as some keen insight by the author. If you want to learn about the Nazi pre-war economy in quick fashion this work is perfect.

This is a very concise summary (with a bountiful bibliography) of the entitled subject, without political overtones. It is written in a style which can be easily understood by those of us who have not studied economics. The inclusion of many tables (which are also easily understood) helps to support the author's contentions. The author also admits where there are contrary opinions, and suggests further study and investigation if the reader wishes to pursue a particular topic. For anyone wondering how the Third Reich was able to rise from WWI, Versailles, and the world's great depression of the early 1930's, this is a superb tome. My normal modus operandi is to read 2 or 3 books on a subject, but this one seems to have addressed all of my questions, without leaving anything unanswered.

I always wanted to know how germans did to overcome their economic collaps after WWI, this is a good book to have an idea of how they did it, though it left me with many unsolved misteries.
