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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

There are two common views of Germany's economic rebound after the Great Crash: that it was propelled by spending on warlike industries and a big army and air force; or that the Nazis were a sort of proto-Keynesians before Keynes.

A later wrinkle on the second view -- because 21st c. rightwingers are desperate to find exculpations for the spectacular failure of their ideology in the Bush Crash -- is that because German economic moves were similar to those of the United States, that makes the New Deal fascist.

None of this stands up to analysis, as R.J. Overy shows in what is virtually a review article on the economic history of Germany in the `20s and `30s. (The essay is intended as a scene setter for students, one of a long series sponsored by the Economic History Association.)

The first common notion is easily disposed of: German recovery had gotten under way before military spending became important in 1936. In fact, current opinion is that the second Four Year Plan and rearmament retarded expansion by directing effort into unproductive areas.

The second notion requires some sophistication to rebut. There is more to Keynesianism than government deficits. And as Overy shows in a long list, the Nazis adopted none of that.

Germany was in a worse state than any other advanced state by 1931-32, but there are only a few broad areas in which economic policy can operate. Thus, if taxes are kept very high (as they were in Germany) then consumption must fall.

And it did. By 1938, German workers enjoyed full employment (not all of it paid, though), but their pay was held low in both nominal and real terms. A German worker drank less than half as much beer in 1938 as he had in 1927.

67 page book for $25.00 This could be any book of value but $25 is not a very good value.
