This formidable series of essays concerns three interrelated aspects of Nazi Germany: relations with ‘the east’, ‘euthanasia’ and extermination. They are linked closely by the sub-themes of professionals or ‘experts’ and an interest in competing systems of morality. The collection includes wholly new contributions to the German-Soviet war and other national tragedies; to the controversial question of whether the Nazi analogy has any relevance to current ethical discussions; and to the contemporary historiography, including works of fiction and literary criticism, of the Holocaust.
