Description
A former bureau chief for Newsweek and the director of public policy at New York's EastWest Institute, Andrew Nagorski chronicles Hitler's rise to power, and Germany's march to the abyss, as seen through the eyes of American diplomats, expatriates, visiting writers, and Olympic athletes in Germany who witnessed the horrific process up-close.

"Andrew Nagorski has written an entertaining chronicle.... Hitlerland brings back to life some early delusions about Hitler's rise that now seem unthinkable. Any reader trying to puzzle out today's world will be unsettled by the reminder of how easy it is to get things wrong."—Economist (London)

"Andrew Nagorski's Hitlerland is a fresh, compelling portrait of Nazi Germany, as seen through the eyes of a fascinating array of Americans who lived and worked there during Hitler's rise to power. The extraordinary saga of Putzi Hanfstaengl, a Harvard graduate who became Hitler's court jester, is just one of the many page-turning stories that makes Hitlerland a book not to be missed."—Lynne Olson

"At times deliciously gossipy, at times thoroughly chilling, Hitlerland offers countless novel insights into Germany's evolution from struggling democracy in the 1920s to totalitarian dictatorship in the 1930s. The intimate portraits from Hitler down add an almost tangible sense of the foibles, ambitions, insecurities and perversities of the relatively small top Nazi elite whose actions plunged our world into a catastrophe from which we are yet fully to recover. The Americans themselves come alive as a group of intense, enterprising journalists and diplomats faced with the greatest challenge of their lives."—Misha Glenny
