In our time two major revolutionary movements Marxism and National Socialism have left their mark upon the world Yet whereas Marxism is generally recognized as representing an intellectual and ideological tradition extending back for at least a century National Socialism is not Rather to many the ideological bases of National Socialism were the product of a small group of unbalanced minds To others the Nazi ideology was merely a propaganda tactic designed to win the support of the masses Still others have found the ideas underlying National Socialism so nebulous and incomprehensible that they have dismissed them as unimportant br br In fact though these ideas are deeply embedded in German history They were current indeed eminently respectable among several generations of Germans prior to Hitler s rise Strange even demonic ideas they were certainly racial thought Germanic Christianity nature mysticism sun worship theosophy but for many Germans long before the Hitler period they suggested the possibility of political and historical salvation br br In this book George L Mosse traces these currents of thought through th and th century German history discussing the role they played and the longings they gratified during nearly a century of German life He reveals how the anti liberal and anti democratic ideology comprising these peculiarly German ideas became institutionalized in the schools youth movements veterans groups political parties how the German revolution called for by the ideology s exponents was transformed by Hitler into an anti Jewish revolution and how the Nazis fully assimilated these ideas into an effective political program as they rose to power, No description available, At the outbreak of the First World War an entire generation of young men charged into battle for what they believed was a glorious cause Over the next four years that cause claimed the lives of some million soldiers more than twice the number killed in all the major wars from to But despite this devastating toll the memory of the war was not predominantly of the grim reality of its trench warfare and battlefield carnage What was most remembered by the war s participants was its sacredness and the martyrdom of those who had died for the greater glory of the fatherland br War and the sanctification of it is the subject of this pioneering work by well known European historian George L Mosse Fallen Soldiers offers a profound analysis of what he calls the Myth of the War Experience a vision of war that masks its horror consecrates its memory and ultimately justifies its purpose Beginning with the Napoleonic wars Mosse traces the origins of this myth and its symbols and examines the role of war volunteers in creating and perpetuating it But it was not until World War I when Europeans confronted mass death on an unprecedented scale that the myth gained its widest currency Indeed as Mosse makes clear the need to find a higher meaning in the war became a national obsession Focusing on Germany with examples from England France and Italy Mosse demonstrates how these nations through memorials monuments and military cemeteries honoring the dead as martyrs glorified the war and fostered a popular acceptance of it He shows how the war was further promoted through a process of trivialization in which war toys and souvenirs as well as postcards like those picturing the Easter Bunny on the Western Front softened the war s image in the public mind br The Great War ended in but the Myth of the War Experience continued achieving its most ruthless political effect in Germany in the interwar years There the glorified notion of war played into the militant politics of the Nazi party fueling the belligerent nationalism that led to World War II But that cataclysm would ultimately shatter the myth and in exploring the postwar years Mosse reveals the extent to which the view of death in war and war in general was finally changed In so doing he completes what is likely to become one of the classic studies of modern war and the complex often disturbing nature of human perception and memory br, What does it mean to be a man What does it mean to be manly How has our notion of masculinity changed over the years In this book noted historian George L Mosse provides the first historical account of the masculine stereotype in modern Western culture tracing the evolution of the idea of manliness to reveal how it came to embody physical beauty courage moral restraint and a strong will This stereotype he finds originated in the tumultuous changes of the eighteenth century as Europe s dominant aristocrats grudgingly yielded to the rise of the professional bureaucratic and commercial middle classes Mosse reveals how the new bourgeoisie faced with a bewildering rapidly industrialized world latched onto the knightly ideal of chivalry He also shows how the rise of universal conscription created a soldierly man as an ideal type In bringing his examination up to the present Mosse studies the key historical roles of the so called fairer sex women and unmanly men Jews and homosexuals in defining and maintaining the male stereotype and considers the possible erosion of that stereotype in our own time br
