This volume presents a biography of one of the most clever and successful of all the Nazi leaders -- Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945). As head of the Nazis' feared SS and the sadistic Gestapo, Himmler supervised the extermination of millions. This is the story of how a seemingly ordinary boy grew into an obsessive and superstitious man who ventured into herbalism, astrology, and homeopathic medicine before finally turning to the "science" of racial purity and the belief in the superiority of the Aryan people. Himmler's unlikely rise to power eventually made him the second most powerful man in Germany. Understanding this sinister life helps us understand a political party and a nation capable of horrendous crimes against the world and humanity

Thanks to film, graphic artists can now create over time as well as in space. An essay discusses the influence of cinema on still paintings (E.G., Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase" and the increasing combination of animation and live action in films. New techniques that are available in animation and in special visual effects are explained, and worldwide developments in film animation are surveyed. Possibilities for future developments, from television commercials for example, are suggested. Much of the book is comprised of stills from recent animated films, many with comments from their animators about the purpose of the film or the technique used. (Jk)

Doctor Goebbels, his life and death by Roger Manvell( Book )
55 editions published between 1960 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 606 libraries worldwide
Overview: As a leader of the twentieth century's most evil regimes, Joseph Goebbel's legacy is his work constructing the mythic image of Hitler during his rise to power and his catastrophic rule of Germany. In Doctor Goebbels, Roger Manvell and Heinrich Fraenkel reveal the man behind the Nazi propaganda machine, beginning with his idyllic childhood in Germany and ending in a dramatic death by suicide. Part biography and part horror, Manvell and Fraenkel delve deep into the mystery shrouding one of Hitler's most evil henchman. Using first-hand accounts from the Nuremberg Trials; by Goebbel's sister Maria; and from the fiance of his youth, Else, Goebbel's carefully crafted character is ripped apart to reveal a boy determined to overcome youthful disabilities and prove, above all, his devotion and dedication to his country. Doctor Goebbels is a landmark work of World War II history and delivers the kind of details that only true scholarship can provide. Written with flair and polished with care, this account is sure to leave readers shocked and surprised at the life of the Fuhrer's "Minister of Hate."
