'A fascinating work on how the Nazis "sold" Hitler to the German
people and vice-versa, almost like a modern commercial brand.' *
Evening Standard (Best Books of 2016) *
'Illuminatingly treats the Third Reich's deployment of myths, symbols, and rhetoric with the eye and ear of a theorist keenly tuned to the subtle plays of power and desire within the manufacture of the "spiritual-religious idea" that is Nazism ... A fresh take on an area of scholarship dominated by historians, Selling Hitler teems with insight.' * Los Angeles Review of Books *
'[A] fresh, surprising and important look at a neglected aspect of the history of Nazi Germany. [...] O'Shaughnessy boldly deconstructs the Nazi propaganda machine and its vast output.' * Jewish Journal *
