Translated from the German.
This is the most comprehensive account to date of literary politics in Nazi Germany and of the institutions, organizations and people who controlled German literature during the Third Reich. Barbian details a media dictatorship - involving the persecution and control of writers, publishers and libraries, but also voluntary assimilation and pre-emptive self-censorship - that began almost immediately under the National Socialists, leading to authors' forced declarations of loyalty, literary propaganda, censorship, and book burnings.
