This book is pure information, no propaganda. The auther tells it like it was, what he found,saw, heard, and understood. It was interesting to note that at the end of the book, the author writes a caution to the world about the possible danger Fascism could have on the world.
This book was written in 1936 and first published in 1937, so there is nothing about the war, nothing about death camps, or anything like that. It is a book about Fascism as a political ideology and how it was working in pre-war Germany.
Reading this book, reminded me alot of Canadian politics and its structure.
The book is definitely anti-Nazi which unfortunately lessens its value as an objective historical source on interpretation of spirit of nazi policies - it is well known that Nazi were not far-right, anti-labor capitalists in their policies as presented in the book but rather positioned themselves between capitalism and socialism, against international high-finance exploiting both the labor and business. The foreword is by Harold J. Laski who was a Marxist so the book is possibly written from this political perspective and should be taken into account. If one still decides to read the book for its good value on nazi administrative structure, a good companion is an official source “Germany speaks” which gives the subject’s view on policies plus some numbers on economic performance totally lacking in this book.
