The Cause of Hitler’s Germany
Paperback, 336 pages
“A truly revolutionary idea… Clear, tight, disciplined, beautifully structured, and brilliantly reasoned.”— Ayn Rand
Self-sacrifice, Oriental mysticism, racial “truth,” the public good, doing one’s duty — these are among the seductive catchphrases that circulated in pre-Nazi Germany. Objectivist author and philosopher Leonard Peikoff was Ayn Rand’s long-time associate. In The Cause of Hitler’s Germany — previously published in The Ominous Parallels — Peikoff demonstrates how unreason and collectivism led the seemingly civilized German society to become a Nazi regime.
