The Law of Blood: Thinking and Acting as a Nazi.


The Law of Blood: Thinking and Acting as a Nazi

Johann Chapoutot. Translated by Miranda Richmond Mouillot

Harvard University Press


504 pages




Having immersed himself in the texts and images that reflected and shaped the mental world of Nazi ideologues and the political world they gave to the German public, French historian Chapoutot teases out a narrative that clarifies how otherwise civilized people could commit such horrible crimes without any discernible guilt. In sections on procreating, fighting, and reigning, he consider such aspects as alienation: acculturation and denaturing, restoration: renaissances, the war within: fighting the Volksfremde, the International Order of Westphalia and Versailles: Finis Germaniae, and the Reich and colonizer of the European east.
