Summary:
The author argues that the imperialist ideology and policies adopted by the Nazis must be seen as the result of a complex evolution of imperialist thinking in Germany, having its roots in the 19th century.
This study traces the evolution of imperialist ideology in Germany from Bismarck in the mid-nineteenth century through to Hitler and the Third Reich. Although much has been written about the virulently racist and anti-communist ideologies of the Nazi party, this is the first book to treat Nazi imperialism as a separate ideology and set it within a sturdy theoretical framework. Smith contends that Nazi imperialism represented the last, ambitious attempt to integrate two century-old ideologies - the elite, pro-industrial Weltpolitik and the popular-based, pro-agrarian Lebensraum - into a single system.
