"a thoughtful, well researched, and well written addition to the field of perpetrator studies—a work that illustrates convincingly the role of Germany’s “best and brightest” in the prosecution of genocide." Holocaust and Genocide Studies "A chilling collective portrait of a generation blinded by the fervor of their ideology and oblivious to the suffering of others." Wall Street Journal "Packed with useful information on this important Nazi cadre." Standpoint "Presents gripping accounts of particular spectacles of violence and their role in imposing order." Los Angeles Review of Books "With this quest for understanding in mind, Ingrao has undertaken what is clearly a mammoth historical task, and ultimately written an astonishingly profound and in-depth book on a subject that ought never be forgotten." David Marx Book Reviews "This is an important and original study of ideology and experience rather than yet another catalogue of crime, and it therefore offers a different and powerful explanation for how educated men became perpetrators of mass murder." Richard Evans, University of Cambridge "How did highly educated German intellectuals of a certain generation make themselves into believing Nazis, career-minded ideologues, and practitioners of terror? In compelling detail and in a manner consistent with the best accomplishments of recent scholarship, Christian Ingrao guides us astutely and assuredly through this shockingly normalized interior world." Geoffrey Eley, University of Michigan
