Craig sees a continuity in German ends, if not means, from Bismarck through to Hitler, and is withering in his criticisms of the German passion for "pounding the table" as a substitute for politics or, indeed, thought. His book doesn't completely explain the mystery of how the Germans could follow Hitler, but it made that clearer for me than it was before I read it. As we might expect of a professor, his analysis of German academic culture & its subservience to authority is especially good.
