Reviews

`well-researched. As a result, Gellately is able to demonstrate the continuity between the Gestapo and the pre-fascist police.' Living Marxism `This is a most impressive book - well-organized, clearly written, balanced in its judgments. It breaks new ground in our understanding of the relations between the Third Reich and the German population and hence of the regime's effectiveness.' Times Higher Education Supplement well-written and scholarly ... fascinating but amazingly neglected subject ... this book deserves a wide readership' History Today `meticulous analysis ... has brought some fascinating and disturbing material to light, and raised a whole new set of questions' Jewish Chronicle `This convincingly argued and meticulously researched and documented book makes an important contribution to redressing the balance ... fascinating and original contribution to the social and administrative history of the Third Reich.' Charlie Jeffery, University of Leicester, Politics and Society in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Vol 4 No.1, 1991 `One of the book's strengths is the wealth of individual case material presented, which makes it fascinating, if depressing, reading ... this is a substantial study which makes an important contribution to the social and institutional history of the Third Reich and to research on the fate of the Jews.' Elizabeth Harvey, University of Liverpool, Patterns of Prejudice, Vol. 25, No. 1, 1991 `This convincingly argued and meticulously researched and documented book makes an important contribution ... fascinating and original contributon to the social and administrative history of the Third Reich.' Charlie Jeffery, University of Leicester, Politics and Society in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, 1. 1991 `Robert Gellately's well-researched and clearly organized study is based on the surviving records from the Lower Franconia region of Bavaria ... as a stimulating and suggestive analysis of the secret police's role in enforcing the Nazi regime's racial policy, this book is unlikely to be surpassed.' Geoff Stoakes, European History Quarterly '... impressive study ... This is more than a regional study. Professor Gellately also draws on material from other parts of Germany, notably the Ruhr, to set his work firmly in a national context. This is a sad but convincing book which will deservedly attract a wide readership.' Conan Fischer University of Strathclyde EHR Shorter Notices April '94
