These two volumes center upon the fantasies that preoccupied a group of men who played a crucial role in the rise of Nazism. Theweleit draws upon the novels, letters, and autobiographies of these proto-fascists and their contemporaries, seeking out and reconstructing their images of women. Heavily illustrated with cartoons, advertisements, engravings, and posters of the era.

Reviews and Endorsements:

Theweleit's book asks some key questions for those of us interested in Men's Studies. [It] takes us inside the psyches of men who, in Theweleit's analysis, are not destroying and murdering out of sublimation, but because they want to.
Men's Studies Review

Theweleit has succeeded not only in provoking the reader intellectually, but also in keeping him or her in suspense.
South Central Review

Horrifying and engaging.
Dorothy Allison, Voice

Something painful, sad, difficult, and exciting is being tracked here, and it is worth your attention.
Robert Gregory, American Book Review

These persuasive insights will interest feminists, psychologists, and anyone concerned with poststructuralist thought, particularly its emphasis on the body. Highly recommended.
Religious Studies Review

Klaus Theweleit's book, like the first volume of his massive study, usefully employs psychoanalytic insights in conjunction with the social-historical analyses of Elias, Mary Douglas, Foucault, and others to investigate the formation and nature of the fascist psyche in 1920s Germany, exploring here the male self-image, envisaged as armored against the threat and intrusion of the feminine.
