The second book in his acclaimed trilogy on the rise and fall of Nazi Germany, Richard J. Evans' "The Third Reich in Power: How the Nazis Won Over the Hearts and Minds of a Nation" explores how Hitler turned Germany from a vibrant democracy into a one-party state. Before Hitler seized power in 1933, Germany had been famous for its sophistication and complexity. So how was it possible for a group of ideological obsessives to re-mould it into a one-party state directed at war and race hate? How did the Nazis win over the hearts and minds of Germany's citizens, twist science, religion and culture, and transform the country's politics to achieve total dominance so quickly? From the Nuremberg Laws to the Olympic Games, Kristallnacht to the Hitler Youth, this gripping account shows how a whole population became enmeshed in a dictatorship that was consumed by hatred and driven by war.

This book is an excellent history of the pre-war years of the Third Reich where Hitler and his entourage ruled with a tight fist, and nothing got by them. Education, Medicine, Law, and other important parts of the society were controlled by appointing pro-Nazi people or people sympathetic to the cause. The author continuously throughout the book makes the reader quite aware of the discrimination against the Jews and others and how so many competent people were removed from positions- in order to make room for the Nazis and their sympathizers. He also makes it abundantly clear that the depression in Germany was halted via a massive arms buildup- where everything including grants- were steered to the arms industry in preparation for war. This book describes everything in the period 1933-1939 when the world looked the other way and payed for it
