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.
