Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data. Hitler, Adolf, g [ Mein Kampf. English]. Mein Kampf I Adolf Hitler; translated by Ralph Manheim. THE appearance of Mein Kampf in unexpurgated transla- tion has called forth far too many vandalistic comments. There are other ways of burning books than on. An English original printing of Four and a Half Years of Struggle Against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice aka Mein Kampf. Before judging what.
November kommen? So the only possible basis for the edition was the text of the printed book, though between vol. This proved to be a sensible decision since in the editions selected there were only small stylistic changes, nothing substantial p. The edi- tors can rightly ascertain that in twenty years Hitler made virtually no changes to his book. Another editorial decision concerns the layout.
The editors went for the first option, though without really explaining this important decision p.

While commentary and text are divid- ed on each double page into a pattern of five columns, the body of the text is reproduced on each right-hand page in two columns and in its original size.
The edition makes it possible to read the text of Mein Kampf in its original form without taking notice of the surrounding commentary and the text-critical apparatus. The effect of such selective reading of the edi- tion on uninformed readers could well be rather creepy and would probably induce them to read the commentary anyway. However, uncritical sympathizers or those with merely a feeling of nostalgia have the opportunity to enjoy Mein Kampf as if it were an original or unchanged reprinted edition.
Not to have thought that all their edi- torial efforts could have been for nothing due to the graphic layout of the text is a considerable failure on the part of the editors.

Mein Kampf, I consider this to be a spurious attempt at originality in a his- toricist vein, which in the case of Hitler, of all people, is totally inap- propriate. Precisely if the intention is not to show too much respect to the original, as the editors claim, then it would have been sensible to abandon the original pagination of Mein Kampf, and to chose a dif- ferent path typographically as well, not just in terms of the font used. Technically it would not have been difficult, as in many other edi- tions, to mark the original pagination in a suitable form in the print- ed text.
Again, as in other editions, forgoing reproduction of the original would have made it possible to have a variable pagination and, where necessary, to reduce the body of the text to fewer lines, depending on the number of text-critical notes and the amount of commentary. In about half of the cases the space under the body of the text is also free of notes. So it is hard not to think that if there had been a different typographical page layout a great deal of space could have been saved in the edition.
On the other hand, of course, it could be argued that ultimately it is of little importance whether a new edition of Mein Kampf is very lengthy or space-saving. After all, this is the first complete critical version of Mein Kampf. This would be all well and good if the editors had not had the stated intention of making the edition particularly reader-friendly p.
This is certainly not the case. Two heavy vol- umes measuring 21x28 cm, in other words, the size of a lexicon, are not exactly reader-friendly, as the reviewer has discovered. Since when does the format of Spiegel or Gala justify that of a scholarly edition?
This technical term conceals the fact that on many of the double pages of the edition there is an enormous amount of empty space. In theory, in the format chosen for the edition, these could have been printed on the left-hand side of the double pages in three columns and on the right- hand side under the text of Mein Kampf, again in two more columns in numerical sequence.
For some inexplicable reason, however, the editors decided to interrupt the arrangement of the columns and to place the notes randomly, such that there is no recognizable ordering principle. What is more, since the notes are set in italics page after page a turbulent, sometimes chaotic picture emerges. One often has to search for a note because the sequence is not immediately appar- ent. This system certainly cannot exactly be described as reader- friendly. The fact that the editors were not entirely comfortable with the layout of the edition is revealed in the few attempts they make to defend its structure with metaphorical concepts.
What this is supposed to mean is never explained. But even if we were to take this metaphor seriously it makes no sense. So this metaphor is at best an original idea that has no place in a scholarly edition. The fact that as an editor one would have a conviction and would make this into the yardstick for the scholarly work actually goes without saying.
Unfortunately, however, here too there is no explanation of this symbolism. Do they mean a subtext beneath the text of Mein Kampf that needs deciphering? Or is it about the effect of Mein Kampf quite separately from the text?
These are by no means trivial questions, for it would only be possible to de- mythologize Mein Kampf if it were clear what the mythology was in the first place. Presumably the editors are convinced that whatever myth Mein Kampf is about is destroyed by their critical commentary so that there is no need to go into such complicated questions at all. Of course it is impossible to assess the numerous cor- rections, and also discoveries, contained in these in the scope of a review.

What is possible, however, is to arrange them into certain cat- egories in order to give a systematic impression of the achievements, but sadly also the shortcomings, of the commentary.
Into the first cat- egory fall those commentaries in which historical events and people, or contexts unknown today that Hitler mentions just briefly or inci- dentally, are explained in detail. They contain a wealth of informa- tion without which it would be virtually impossible to understand Mein Kampf today.
In a second category the editors go a step further and reveal fac- tual errors and false assertions made by Hitler. Some of these are unconscious mistakes attributable to his lack of education. What they are overlooking here, however, is that he returned to this again in his Table Talks in order to draw a parallel between his own biography and that of Mussolini.
Werner Jachmann ed. So there is also something human that connects me with him. This confirms the older finding that National Socialism was unable to develop a definitive biological racial theory because this simply cannot be founded in natural sci- ence. It is no accident that the antisemitic Nuremberg Racial Laws of referred to the Jewish religion.
It is less surprising than the edi- tors seem to think that Hitler used the term synonymously with that of Volk p. This is not the result of any particular interest in the his- tory of ideas on the part of the editors, nor is it reflected in their prob- lematic methodological approaches.
Here they want to present Mein Kampf as the pitiful effort of an imitating dilettante in which there are only very few original ideas. In itself this is a very promising approach that can justify the reprint of Mein Kampf without more ado, even if the transfer of ideas to Hitler in terms of the history of their reception is not adequately substantiated.
This is not pulled together in this edition but can be reconstructed to some extent from scattered references. Which books Hitler consumed in this superficial way must largely remain a mys- tery. Before he most probably only borrowed books from libraries so that what he read at that time can no longer be reconstructed. From onwards his library only grew through chance gifts from his admir- 13 Cf.
Stuttgart, , Cited in Mein Kampf, He suggested that the book exhausted curious German readers, but its "ceaseless repetition of the argument, left impregnably in their minds, fecund and germinating". Orwell suggested that the force of Hitler's personality shone through the often "clumsy" writing, capturing the magnetic allure of Hitler for many Germans. In essence, Orwell notes, Hitler offers only visions of endless struggle and conflict in the creation of "a horrible brainless empire" that "stretch[es] to Afghanistan or thereabouts".
He wrote, "Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people 'I offer you a good time,' Hitler has said to them, 'I offer you struggle, danger, and death,' and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.
In his book The Menace of the Herd , Austrian scholar Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn  described Hitler's ideas in Mein Kampf and elsewhere as "a veritable reductio ad absurdum of ' progressive ' thought"  and betraying "a curious lack of original thought" that shows Hitler offered no innovative or original ideas but was merely "a virtuoso of commonplaces which he may or may not repeat in the guise of a 'new discovery.
When Hitler and Mussolini attack the "western democracies" they insinuate that their "democracy" is not genuine. National Socialism envisages abolishing the difference in wealth, education, intellect, taste, philosophy, and habits by a leveling process which necessitates in turn a total control over the child and the adolescent.
Every personal attitude will be branded—after communist pattern—as " bourgeois ," and this in spite of the fact that the bourgeois is the representative of the most herdist class in the world, and that National Socialism is a basically bourgeois movement.
Hitler in Mein Kampf repeatedly speaks of the "masses" and the "herd" referring to the people. The German people should probably, in his view, remain a mass of identical "individuals" in an enormous sand heap or ant heap, identical even to the color of their shirts, the garment nearest to the body.
In his The Second World War , published in several volumes in the late s and early s, Winston Churchill wrote that he felt that after Hitler's ascension to power, no other book than Mein Kampf deserved more intensive scrutiny.

While Hitler was in power — , Mein Kampf came to be available in three common editions. The first, the Volksausgabe or People's Edition, featured the original cover on the dust jacket and was navy blue underneath with a gold swastika eagle embossed on the cover. The Hochzeitsausgabe , or Wedding Edition, in a slipcase with the seal of the province embossed in gold onto a parchment-like cover was given free to marrying couples.
In , the Tornister-Ausgabe , or Knapsack Edition, was released. This edition was a compact, but unabridged, version in a red cover and was released by the post office, available to be sent to loved ones fighting at the front.
These three editions combined both volumes into the same book. A special edition was published in in honour of Hitler's 50th birthday. It came in both dark blue and bright red boards with a gold sword on the cover.
Environmental Pollution and Control, Fourth Edition
This work contained both volumes one and two. It was considered a deluxe version, relative to the smaller and more common Volksausgabe. The book could also be downloadd as a two-volume set during Hitler's rule, and was available in soft cover and hardcover. The soft cover edition contained the original cover as pictured at the top of this article. The hardcover edition had a leather spine with cloth-covered boards.
The cover and spine contained an image of three brown oak leaves. At the time of his suicide, Hitler's official place of residence was in Munich , which led to his entire estate, including all rights to Mein Kampf , changing to the ownership of the state of Bavaria.
The government of Bavaria, in agreement with the federal government of Germany, refused to allow any copying or printing of the book in Germany. It also opposed copying and printing in other countries, but with less success. As per German copyright law, the entire text entered the public domain on 1 January , 70 years after the author's death. Owning and downloading the book in Germany is not an offence. Trading in old copies is lawful as well, unless it is done in such a fashion as to "promote hatred or war.
In , Stephan Kramer, secretary-general of the Central Council of Jews in Germany , not only recommended lifting the ban, but volunteered the help of his organization in editing and annotating the text, saying that it is time for the book to be made available to all online. An unauthorized French edition was published in with critical introduction by Marshal Lyautey. The Nazi regime successfully sued the publishers in the Commercial Court , having all copies seized, the print broken up and having an injunction against booksellers offering any copies.
Since its first publication in India in , Mein Kampf has gone through hundreds of editions and sold over , copies.
In the Russian Federation , Mein Kampf has been published at least three times since ; the Russian text is also available on websites. In the Public Chamber of Russia proposed banning the book.
In St. Petersburg's branch of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs requested to remove an annotated and hyper-linked Russian translation of the book from a historiography website. Mein Kampf has been reprinted several times since ; in , , and In the Government of Bavaria tried to stop the publication of the book, and the case went to the Supreme Court of Sweden which ruled in favour of the publisher, stating that the book is protected by copyright, but that the copyright holder is unidentified and not the State of Bavaria and that the original Swedish publisher from had gone out of business.
It therefore refused the Government of Bavaria's claim. Mein Kampf was widely available and growing in popularity in Turkey , even to the point where it became a bestseller, selling up to , copies in just two months in Analysts and commentators believe the popularity of the book to be related to a rise in nationalism and anti-U.
A columnist in Shalom stated this was a result of "what is happening in the Middle East, the Israeli-Palestinian problem and the war in Iraq. In the United States, Mein Kampf can be found at many community libraries and can be bought, sold and traded in bookshops. More than 15, copies are sold a year. After a public outcry, both companies agreed to stop those sales to addresses in Germany.
On 3 February , the Institute of Contemporary History IfZ in Munich announced plans to republish an annotated version of the text, for educational purposes in schools and universities, in The book had last been published in Germany in It stated that permits for reprints would not be issued, at home or abroad.
This would also apply to a new annotated edition. There was disagreement about the issue of whether the republished book might be banned as Nazi propaganda. The Bavarian government emphasized that even after expiration of the copyright, "the dissemination of Nazi ideologies will remain prohibited in Germany and is punishable under the penal code". On 12 December the Bavarian government cancelled its financial support for an annotated edition. IfZ, which was preparing the translation, announced that it intended to proceed with publication after the copyright expired.
Richard Verber, vice-president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews , stated in that the board trusted the academic and educational value of republishing. I do understand how some Jewish groups could be upset and nervous, but it seems it is being done from a historical point of view and to put it in context. An annotated edition of Mein Kampf was published in Germany in January and sold out within hours on site's German site.
Dussmann, a Berlin bookstore, stated that one copy was available on the shelves in the history section, but that it would not be advertised and more copies would be available only on order. After the party's poor showing in the elections, Hitler believed that the reason for his loss was the public's misunderstanding of his ideas.
He then retired to Munich to dictate a sequel to Mein Kampf to expand on its ideas, with more focus on foreign policy. Only two copies of the page manuscript were originally made, and only one of these was ever made public.
The document was neither edited nor published during the Nazi era and remains known as Zweites Buch , or "Second Book". To keep the document strictly secret, in Hitler ordered that it be placed in a safe in an air raid shelter.
It remained there until being discovered by an American officer in The authenticity of the document found in has been verified by Josef Berg, a former employee of the Nazi publishing house Eher Verlag, and Telford Taylor , a former brigadier general of the United States Army Reserve and Chief Counsel at the Nuremberg war-crimes trials. A pirated edition was published in English in New York in The first authoritative English edition was not published until Hitler's Second Book: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
