• Definitive account of Nazi foreign policyAvailable for the first time as a single volume

‘The course of German foreign policy provides the obvious organizing principle for any account of the origins of World War II. This is not to assert that no other power or other factor bears any substantial share of the responsibility for the outbreak of that war or the developments leading up to it but rather to suggest that a complex question is perhaps best studied by examining its core.'
—Gerhard L. Weinberg

Hitler's Foreign Policy 1933-1939 is the definitive study of the origins of World War II by the most knowledgeable scholar of that conflict. Written over the course of many years and previously published in two volumes, the complete and updated edition is now available in a single volume for the first time. Below are examples of the high praise heaped on the first edition:

"The result of a decade's research and analysis, the text offers as much interpretation as fact, and both are well synthesized in a facilely written narrative style.”Gerard E. Silberstein - American Historical Review

"Weinberg's scope is refreshingly broad.”John S. Wozniak -Review of Politics

"Social and intellectual history of diplomacy at its best.”Vojtech Mastny - New Leader
