"This book is the first systematic study of the relations between German high society and the Nazis. It uses unpublished archival material, private diaries, and diplomatic documents to take us into the hidden areas of power where privileges, tax breaks, and stolen property were exchanged." "D'Almeida shows how members of German high society sought to outdo each other in showing zealous support for Hitler, how the old elites - starting with the Kaiser's sons - partied alongside parvenus, and how actors, aristocrats, SS technocrats, and diplomats came together to form a strange imperial court. Women also played a role in this theatre of power; they were persuaded that they had gained in dignity what they had lost in civil rights." There emerges a fascinating and disturbing picture of a group that allowed nothing - not war, the plundering of Europe, or the extermination of peoples - to alter their cynical enjoyment of pleasures. More than a study of a class or a chronicle, this book lifts the veil that has concealed a society that used secrecy to protect itself.
