About the Author

Christopher M. Hutton is Associate Professor and Head of Department of English at the University of Hong Kong.


"Hutton's goal, which he achieves in a highly accessible manner, is to inform the discussion on the link between race theory, National Socialist ideology and broader trends in European thought."
Political Studies Review

"Christopher Hutton's new book is a masterful in-depth study of the intricate connection between ideas, ideology, and politics; a connection which in the case of German National Socialism resulted in the most horrific crimes against humanity."
Dov-Ber Kerler, Indiana University

"Race and the Third Reich shows all the marks of intellectual distinction that we have now come to associate with the work of Chris Hutton. He gives us a comprehensive coverage of the subject, with a sharp eye for significant detail, debunking notions about political control over ideological matters and exposing the confusion which surrounded such key concepts as 'Aryan' and the 'Nordic ideal'. Readers who take Hutton as their guide through this political, academic and linguistic maze will learn a great deal about figures whom they have heard of only vaguely as 'names', in the context of nineteenth- and twentieth-century European history."
Roy Harris, University of Oxford

"Hutton's book takes a fresh perspective on race and Nazism. It probes into and presents a more sophisticated understanding of the complex and partly contradictory intellectual roots of Nazi ideology and its relationship to science, racial anthropology and biology than its predecessors. Most importantly Hutton shows convincingly and in fascinating detail how ideology and science were separate and intellectual discourse much more in line with international developments than commonly realized."
Peter Weingart, University of Bielefeld
