Women in Nazi Germany

Women in Nazi Germany by Jill Stephenson

Intended as an overview and introduction to the scholarship of a historiographically rich and politically complex theme. Succeeds in this end, hinting at more major analysis than is delivered, but within the limits of its length and comprehensibility it's quite worthwhile. Features very direct writing, in the best sense of the terms.

Worse than: Gendering Orientalism: race, femininity and representation by Reina Lewis

Better than: The Nazi Seizure of Power by William Sheridan Allen
