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."
