<p><strong>Finally, the one-volume edition of Ian Kershaw's definitive and masterful biography of Hitler.<br /></strong></p>"The Hitler biography of the twenty-first century" (Richard J. Evans), Ian Kershaw's <em>Hitler</em> is a new, distilled, one-volume masterpiece that will become the standard work. From Hitler's origins as a failed artist in fin-de-siècle Vienna to the terrifying last days in his Berlin bunker, Kershaw's richly illustrated biography is a mesmerizing portrait of how Hitler attained, exercised, and retained power. Drawing on previously untapped sources, such as Goebbels's diaries, Kershaw addresses crucial questions about the unique nature of Nazi radicalism, about the Holocaust, and about the poisoned European world that allowed Hitler to operate so effectively.<br /> 151 photographs; 8 maps
