Weimar Radicals: Nazis and Communists Between Authenticity and Performance

People in this story

Professor Timothy Brown is the author of Weimar Radicals: Nazis and Communists Between Authenticity and Performance (Berghahn Books, 2009). Professor Brown examines the gray zone of infiltration and subversion in which the Nazi and Communist parties sought to influence and undermine eachother. The struggle between Nazism and Communism is situated within a broader conversation among right and left-wing publicists, across the Youth Movement and in the National Bolshevik scene, thus revealing the existence of a discourse on revolutionary legitimacy fought according to a set of common assumptions about the qualities of the ideal revolutionary.
