The rise and fall of Weimar democracy by Hans Mommsen( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this definitive analysis of the Weimar Republic, Hans Mommsen surveys the political, social, and economic development of Germany between the end of World War I and the appointment of Adolf Hitler as chancellor in 1933. His assessment of the German experiment with democracy challenges many long-held assumptions about the course and character of German history. Mommsen argues persuasively that the rise of totalitarianism in Germany was not inevitable but was the result of a confluence of specific domestic and international forces. As long as France and Britain exerted pressure on the new Germany after World War I, the radical Right hesitated to overthrow the constitution. But as international scrutiny decreased with the recognition of the legitimacy of the Weimar regime, totalitarian elements were able to gain the upper hand. At the same time, the world economic crisis of the early 1930s, with its social and political ramifications, further destabilized German democracy"--Book cover
German liberalism and the dissolution of the Weimar party system, 1918-1933 by Larry Eugene Jones( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elections, mass politics, and social change in modern Germany : new perspectives by Larry Eugene Jones( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays presents the most recent work on Germany's stormy and problematic encounter with mass politics from the time of Bismarck to the Nazi era. The authors - sixteen scholars from Canada, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States - consider this problem from novel and sometimes surprising viewpoints. The history of elections, narrowly conceived, is abandoned in favor of a broader inquiry into the roots of German political loyalties and their relationship to the historic cleavages of class, gender, language, religion, generation, and locality. The essays not only present archival findings, but also pursue more theoretical or conjectural paradigms and raise new questions. Collectively, the authors explore the twin problems of electoral politics and social dislocation with language that is intentionally familiar, inventive, and allusive all at once - in a sense, reflecting the Germans' own unfinished search for political consensus and social stability

The German right in the Weimar Republic : studies in the history of German conservatism, nationalism, and antisemitism by Larry Eugene Jones( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Significant recent research on the German Right between 1918 and 1933 calls into question received narratives of Weimar political history. The German Right in the Weimar Republic examines the role that the German Right played in the destabilization and overthrow of the Weimar Republic, with particular emphasis on the political and organizational history of Rightist groups as well as on the many permutations of right-wing ideology during the period. In particular, antisemitism and the so-called "Jewish Question" played a prominent role in the self-definition and politics of the right-wing groups and ideologies explored by the contributors to this volume
Hitler versus Hindenburg : the 1932 presidential elections and the end of the Weimar Republic by Larry Eugene Jones( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hitler versus Hindenburg provides the first in-depth study of the titanic struggle between the two most dominant figures on the German Right in the last year before the establishment of the Third Reich. Although Hindenburg was reelected as Reich president by a comfortable margin, his authority was severely weakened by the fact that the vast majority of those who had supported his candidacy seven years earlier had switched their support to Hitler in 1932. What the two candidates shared in common, however, was that they both relied upon charisma to legitimate their claim to the leadership of the German nation. The increasing reliance upon charisma in the 1932 presidential elections greatly accelerated the delegitimation of the Weimar Republic and set the stage for Hitler's appointment as chancellor nine months later"--
