Editorial Reviews

Review

"A well-researched and insightful examination of Adolf Hitler's political awakening in the early 1920s... extremely thought provoking.... Becoming Hitler offers timely lessons, the first and most obvious is to underscore the striking parallels in political psychology between Hitler and Donald Trump."―Forward

"This comprehensive work should become the standard text on Hitler and the origins of the Nazi party." Library Journal

"[An] intensively researched account.... A satisfying, nuts-and-bolts account of the six-year span during which an obscure ex-soldier became a demagogue the German establishment should have taken more seriously."―HistoryNet

"Carefully tracking [Hitler's] life from 1918 to 1926, Weber documents the transformation that turned this rudderless opportunist into a fiery orator enjoying the support of millions who hailed him as a political genius, even a messiah.... An unflinching inquiry."―Booklist

"Compelling research and original insights bring a fuller understanding to the mind and motives of the demagogue."―Kirkus Reviews

"In his brilliant Becoming Hitler, Thomas Weber offers an original, well-documented, and enthralling account of the how and why of Hitler's rapid metamorphosis from zero to self-defined hero in the where of 1919 Munich-a city ripped apart by a short civil war and its vengeful aftermath. Weber's book makes us rethink everything we thought we knew about the emergence of Hitler as a political leader."
Robert Jan van Pelt, University of Waterloo, Canada

"A splendid account of a vile subject."
Nicholas Stargardt, author of The German War

"Thomas Weber showcases Hitler's terrifying originality as an extremist thinker: committed, from the beginning of his meteoric ascent, to the restoration of German greatness and to the destruction of the Jews. An absolutely compelling and original portrait of a wicked genius in all his grandeur and horror."
Michael Ignatieff, President, Central European University, Budapest

"Thomas Weber is one of the foremost world authorities on Hitler. He refuted the mantra that there was nothing more to say about the German dictator and no new sources to be found with his path-breaking study of Hitler's First War."―Brendan Simms, author of Europe: The Struggle for Supremacy, 1453 to the Present

"This is the most important book on Hitler and National Socialism since Ian Kershaw's monumental biography. It is amazing how much new information and documentation Thomas Weber has used to show precisely when, how, and why Hitler's world view was shaped, and precisely where the intellectual, emotional, and social origins of genocide and of the Holocaust lay."
Harold James, professor of history, Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs, Princeton University
