Abstract:

"This linguistic investgation into the form of Hitler's langauge reveals the wide range of Hitler's linguistic prowess, identifies, definite structural preferences, refutes several popular myths surrounding Hitler's langauge competency, suggests possible correlations between form and comunicative intent, and contributes to the inventory of rhetorical devices.

A culmination of over a decade of interdisciplinary research into the emergence of Hitler as dictator of Germany, the preconditions, and the ensuing effects on Germany, this book is a direct out-growth of a course on the literature of the Third Reich, which Professor Eskew instituted in the late Seventies at Dillard University in New Orleans.

Professor Eskew also provides a scholarly and critical review of literature in the field, accompanied by an extensive bibliography of more than 200 references to the language of Hitler and to selected studies on syntax."--BOOK JACKET.
