The offers range as of today from EUR to EUR, while the regular price is 59 EUR. About the book itself: It contains the complete text of Hitler's Mein Kampf together with a huge amount of scientific annotations that were made by a group of historians at the German Institute for Contemporary History.
Not all pages are so full as seen here, but most of them are. As is usual in such a work, we also find a huge amount of additional information, a page preface with essays and information about the original book, as well as a page appendix.
When and how I read this giant book, I have not decided yet. Nonetheless, I persevered, and I have to admit that this makes me a little proud of myself.
However, it was illegal to reissue Mein Kampf ; not for ideological, but simply for copyright reasons. In , copyrights were transferred to the state of Bavaria which also assumed legal succession and trusteeship of the original publisher Eher Verlag, Munich , and they denied any attempt to re-publish the book.
Under German law a copyright expires 70 years after the death of the author and because Hitler died in the copyright expired at the end of Therefore, as of , the text is in the public domain in Germany.
BTW, for the same reason, access to gutenberg. Read some of the articles before and after the publication here mostly German, some English.
Book History Hitler wrote the first volume of Mein Kampf during his incarceration at the Landsberg penal facility.
In retrospect, this imprisonment was even a lucky break for Hitler. Part of the first volume is some kind of autobiography.
At the time, writing a resume was part of rehabilitation and mandatory for inmates. There are contradictory statements about the exact development of the book and Hitler himself has commented on this only very little.
The genesis, as far as it is known, is discussed in the introduction. An Evil Book? I happened to come into possession of an original edition but I doubt I would have read more than three chapters of it.
Is this an evil book? Or a dangerous one? Do you become a Nazi by reading it? Or are Nazis converted by reading this pamphlet?
In my opinion, nationalist ideas are neither fueled nor diminished by a scientific edition like this one. That's ridiculous.
I can not remember ever having read a book that has such a weak prose. You can take Hitler at face-value, as history has shown in a frightening way.
Unfortunately not many people did that at the time of publication when it was still possible to eradicate this still rather fragile movement.
Again and again Hitler returns to these topics from different angles. Elsewhere he certifies that the Jewish race has a self-preservation instinct stronger than any other.
For Hitler, at the time of writing Mein Kampf , Germany lay on the ground, was, in his eyes, crippled. Only a strong leader would be able to counteract this downfall and make Germany great again.
And, of course, this leader can only be himself, even if he does not explicitly say so here we have a little subtext. This was out of the question for Hitler.
As a precaution, the passage on France was removed from the French translation For this, Hitler was even prepared to make alliances with Italy and England.
He desperately wanted a new war - that can not be interpreted any differently while reading. There are more than of them, so on average 4. They serve both as contextualization, as well as correction of innumerable insinuations and flat mistakes of the text and at the times where Hitler got something right, the annotations provide further facts that were conveniently left out and put things into perspective.
Each footnote is provided with at least one reference to a source, the bibliography or another place in Mein Kampf.
I can not imagine what a Herculean task was accomplished here. The acknowledgments at the end of the book mention the many topics that needed expert advice.
And there were many, many, many people involved in the production of the complete work! The sheer amount of footnotes may look intimidating to the reader at first.
For example, if you turn a page and see the following text that awaits reading, you might feel like quitting.
The book calls a spade a spade, where necessary. Hitler was not born anit-Semit. He had his sources. And they are called by name, wherever possible.
In January , when the book was presented to the public, Ian Kershaw author of a two-volume Hitler biography also spoke and found only praising words for this edition.
How do you judge a book whose text belongs to the worst I ever read in content and form , but whose annotations and further information are valuable enough to give it four or even five stars?
An average of two or three does not seem right to me either — lukewarm somehow. In the end, I opted for the worst possible rating. The main reason for this was that this edition was merged with all other editions of Mein Kampf this is according to some GR policy and contrary to the librarian note I made when creating the book on GR.
By giving the book a higher rating I would only increase the already way too high average of 3. So, here we have the rare, and probably unique, case where I recommend a book that I rated with one star to anyone who is interested in German and world history and prepared to dig through this monster.
Of course, this recommendation only applies for the critical edition! This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.

I don't actually intend to read this book, just to share the following passage from Volume 4 of Kasparov's My Great Predecessors.
Bobby Fischer and Samuel Reshevsky at the Interzonal in Palma de Mallorca: During the tournament they could sometimes be seen, leisurely walking along, peacefully chatting, little Sammy and tall Fischer.
An idyllic picture: an orthodox Jew and an extremist who praised Mein Kampf. Later Reshevsky explained: 'He has his views, I have my views. It didn't bother me.

I tried to make him see the light. I didn't succeed, but I tried. He was a unique person. Mar 29, Greta G marked it as not-to-read. I can understand why people want to read This.
Out of curiosity. Or because it's kind of a forbidden fruit but a rotten fruit. There's so much to read about the war and the holocaust. Read those books first.
Read what survivors endured. Read about the trials against the nazi's. And then make up your mind. I'm sure that if you're well informed, and I mean really well, you don't want to read anything that was written by this vermin.
It feels to me that giving in to your curiosity to read this ' I can understand why people want to read This. It feels to me that giving in to your curiosity to read this 'book', is like making a deal with the devil.
Do you really want that? And this has nothing to do with censorship. It's self-respect. It's what you stand for.
View all 46 comments. I read this for historical context only. So, if you can look past the rambling, zero editing, and hate-fueled rhetoric, this is an extremely fascinating book!!
The interesting thing about this book is Hitler hid nothing because he believed "secret organizations can only be illegal", pg. The book served as a dual argument to: 1.
Adolf Hitler was a man deeply troubled by his environment. A war veteran returning home to see an alien world he did not recognize.
He soon becomes disenfranchised by economic troubles, the threat of Marxism, and a Germany he defended that has collapsed all around him.
In the first part of the book: Part I - A Reckoning pgs. He lays out various principles and ideas to better Germany and the German people.
He explains Pan-Germanism, expansion and taking land which probably explains Operation Barbarossa and taking land from the subhuman Slav , and lots of other problem-solution ideas.
He devotes an entire chapter to expressions of antisemitism: "Nation and Race" pgs. Hitler explains the Jewish problem: Jews are parasites of society, Jews are born with a predisposition to lie and cheat, Jews are destroyers and corruptors of the societies they live within, Jews take over foreign culture and pollute bloodlines, etc.
It was some very hateful stuff. In the second part of the book: Part II - The Nationalist Socialist Movement pgs. Hitler takes off with his plans in creating a superior post-WWI Germany free of Jews and Marxists.
Hitler mentions for the first time the name "National Socialist German Workers' Party" pg. He also designed the final form of the National Socialist German Workers' Party "flag with a red background, a white disk, and a black swastika in the middle" pg.
We must safeguard the existence and reproduction of our race and our people [and] purity of our blood. Hitler never says "kills Jews" directly, but he does say "The nationalization of our masses will succeed only when their international poisoners [Jews] are exterminated" pg.
I read this for historical value only but I was fascinated the entire time. Some parts were incredibly boring yet others were uniquely interesting.

First things first Who should read this: Anyone intelligent enough to see through Hitler's BS. Who should not-read this: everyone else Unfortunately I was in the second category when I read Mein Kampf; most teenagers are.
The first part of the book is a very convincing patriotic, nationalistic point of view. The second part is where all the hate propaganda truly begins.
By the time naive readers reach the second part, they might be convinced that Hitler is making sensible arguments.
I was well th First things first I was well through three quarters of the book before I saw through Hitler's ruse.
This was the first and last, so far book to trick me, and give Hitler props for that. As for the actual substance of the book, it is nothing but a desperate attempt to allot blame where it does not belong.
It fails at being a literary work of any decent calibre; but thoroughly succeeds in being a work of unflinching propaganda.
I laughed. I cried. It was better than Cats. But I still didn't like it. I even tried listening to Wagner and making shitty art while reading it What the heck, it beats the shit out of The Fountainhead Yeah, its pretty bad.
Analyze it all you want for whatever reason - it still blows. View 1 comment. As a historical document, Mein Kampf is a window into the interwar years of Europe.
As philosophy, it's terrifying. As a book, it's not too coherent, save when Hitler goes into his extended rants, where he seems to find his voice which makes me cringe, but it is fascinating that when he channels his hate, he gets on a more sound structural footing - and I use the word "sound" loosely.
Not quite the ravings of a madman, but definitely the ravings of a madman in the making. View all 13 comments. Participating in this Pantaloonless Buddy Read Side Read.

View all 3 comments. Apr 12, Jonathan rated it did not like it Shelves: badly-behaving-authors , shoah. I had to read the whole boring mess of this as part of my Masters.
An extraordinarily confused, badly written, badly argued, incoherent piece of crap. There are, however, some interesting and useful bits in there when one is trying to understand Hitler's world-view, and his appeal.
No matter what amount of talent is employed in the organisation of propaganda, it will have no result if due account is not taken of these fundamental principles.
Propaganda must be limited to a few simple themes and these must be represented again and again. Here, as in innumerable other cases, perseverance is the first and most important condition of success Its chief function is to convince the masses, whose slowness of understanding needs to be given time in order that they may absorb information; and only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea on the memory of the crowd.

A hateful book full of his need for personal vengeance against those he believed had wronged him. It's disjointed and just badly written.
It was an easy enough read though, to use as a tool for the thugs and misanthropes he gathered around his crusade of hate.
Reviewer: Greg J - favorite favorite - April 10, Subject: Text is annotated in a biased manner. From the introduction: "No American would like to assume responsibility for giving the public a text which, if not tested in the light of diligent inquiry, might convey the impression that Hitler was writing history rather than propaganda.
Tested in the light of diligent inquiry? As an intelligent reader, I am the one that must diligently decide fact from fiction.
In a text such as politically charged as this, any alteration, any notation, is unacceptable. If you want to read Mein Kampf, I suggest looking elsewhere.

Nazi anti-Semitism was rooted in religious anti-Semitism and enhanced by political anti-Semitism. To this the Nazis added a further dimension: racial anti-Semitism.
