Item description for Hitler's Library by Ambrus Miskolczy...
The first book that presents the so called Hitler-Library. It sheds new lights on the readings of Hitler and on his technics how to read a book. He played the role of the ideal reader of Schoppenhauer, nevertheless his remarks destroy the image of the contemporary Hitler-cult, mainly if we see how he read Ernst Jnger, Richard Wagner, or Paul de Lagarde, and how he reread his Mein Kampf.
Hitler is presented in this book as a reader and it verifies the explication of his personality (Hitler as follower of Wagner, Hitler as philosopher, Hitler as crazy, Hitler as clever politician, Hitler as hero): it gives the picture of a half-educated gangster.
As a kind of explication of the success of the nazism and that of the Hitler myth, the book tries to show the gnostic character of the phenomenon. This is a warning to the static views of the traditional historiography.
