1 Review
This book purports that, given Operation Barbarossa s concept and scope, it would have been impossible without Nazi ideology, that we cannot understand it in the absence of its reference to the Holocaust. It asks and attempts to answer whether we can describe ideology without reference to ethics and speak about genocide while ignoring philosophy."

Just a lot more pages of anti Hitler (National Socialist) crap. If you you want to feel vindicated in your hatred, get it and feel like a expect on Evil, but it is not in any stretch a balanced truthful history. Just crap.

Page 11 - Ideology is the most elusive concept in the whole of social science. For it asks about the bases and validity of our most fundamental ideas. As such, it is an essentially contested concept, that is, a concept about the very definition (and therefore application) of which there is acute controversy.
