Totalitarianism in the age of international civil war. Edited by Gerhard Besier and Ronald Lambrecht

Sigmund Neumann, a historian and political scientist from Leipzig, in Germany, had to emigrate to the U.S.A. in 1933 because of his Jewish roots. In 1942 he published, in the U.S.A., his ground-breaking work "Permanent Revolution". In this work, he compares for the first time National-Socialism (or Nazism), Fascism and Bolshevism. 20 years later, he wrote an introduction and three additional chapters for a new edition of his book, but because of a serious illness Neumann was unable to complete the full revision of his work. Now, for the first time, the work "Permanent Revolution" is translated into German. With numerous notes and references to the current research literature, the two editors show that the book has not yet lost any of its relevance.
