As a young man, Joseph Goebbels was a budding narcissist with a constant need of approval. Through political involvement, he found personal affirmation within the German National Socialist Party. In this comprehensive volume, Peter Longerich documents Goebbels & rsquo; descent into anti-Semitism and ideology and ascent through the ranks of the Nazi party, where he became an integral member Hitler & rsquo;s inner circle and where he shaped a brutal campaign of Nazi propaganda. In life and in his grisly family suicide, Goebbels was one of Hitler & rsquo;s most loyal acolytes. Though powerful in the party and in wartime Germany, Longerich & rsquo;s Goebbels is a man dogged by insecurities and consumed by his fierce adherence to the Nazi cause. Longerich engages and challenges the careful self & mdash;portrait that Goebbels left behind in his diaries, and, as he delves deep into the mind of Hitler & rsquo;s master propagandist, Longerich discovers first & mdash;hand how the Nazi message was conceived. This complete portrait of the man behind the message is sure to become a standard for historians and students of the holocaust for years to come.
