Culture War: How The Nazi Party Recast Nietzsche, David B. Dennis Oct 2017

Culture War: How The Nazi Party Recast Nietzsche, David B. Dennis

David B. Dennis

High culture played an important political role in Hitler’s Germany.

War On Modern Music And Music In Modern War: Voelkischer Beobachter Reception Of 20th Century Composers, David B. Dennis

David B. Dennis

Recent scholarship on Nazi music policy pays little attention to the main party newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter, or comparable publications for the general public. Most work concentrates on publications Nazis targeted at expert audiences, in this case music journals. To think our histories of Nazi music politics are complete without comprehensive analysis of the party daily is premature.
