Mein Kamp See a Problem? VideoThe Story of Fascism: Hitler’s \
The royalty on the first printing in the U. There were three separate printings from August to March , totaling 14,; sales totals by March 31, , were 10, The Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda commissioned James Vincent Murphy , who had been employed to make English translations of Hitler's speeches and other items, to begin an English translation of Mein Kampf in late and it was finished by the fall of Murphy was beginning to be seen as "unreliable" by the government and was dismissed from his position at the Ministry.
As the international situation worsened in , Murphy sent his wife and children to England to live with her mother. They arrived in Southampton in June, while James finished up the rest of his commissioned translation work in Berlin and came to London in early September.
In London Murphy contacted his literary agent, Robert Somerville, and they found an interested publisher in Heinemann. However, they realized that translation rights in the United Kingdom and its dependencies already belonged to Hurst and Blackett.
Furthermore, they did not have a manuscript in hand. So Murphy was convinced to return to Germany to secure both a copy of the manuscript and permission to publish it, but on the date he was scheduled fly to Berlin.
Therefore, his wife, Mary, decided to make the trip, finally crossing the Channel on November 6, In Berlin she was unable to schedule any appointments with the Propaganda Ministry until November This meant she was in Berlin during the infamous Kristallnacht pogrom of November 9.
She pursued other contacts within the Ministry but came up empty handed. Finally, without any more money and living with her ex-house keeper, she decided to visit one of James' former secretaries whom he had employed as a typist.
To her great relief, she still had one of the handwritten copies of the James Murphy translation. She left Berlin on November Meanwhile, Hurst and Blackett had not yet decided whether to publish Murphy's manuscript, or any translation at all.
On November 21, they received a message from Eher Verlag stating that they had not authorized Murphy to publish his edition in England, but reiterating that Hurst and Blackett would be the publisher if any edition was ever released in England.
Unbeknownst to them, the various principals in Berlin and the German diplomats in the US were contacting each other, trying to find out what their position was with regards to the various translations.
By the time the matter was finally sent to the Reichskanzlei in February , the point had been rendered moot. While neither Hitler nor any of the German government officials endorsed the Murphy translation, they ultimately took no action against it, and by May Eher Verlag was inquiring about possible royalties.
They were told that royalties would only be paid after six months in print. However, by then war had broken out between the two countries and copyright relations severed.
Because so many records were destroyed during the war, accurate sales figures on Murphy's translation are difficult to establish.
Robert Sommerfeld reported that approximately 32, copies were sold by August There was also an illustrated edition and a serial edition in eight parts.
It has been conjectured that ,—, copies were sold in total. The publishers did not feel the need to pay him any more after they received a letter from Germany prior to publication, stating he had already been paid for his efforts when he was employed by the Propaganda Ministry.
This 'Operation Sea Lion Edition' was finalized and printed in the summer of This translation was made specifically because until then the only widespread English translation, by Dugdale, was abridged with support from the Nazi regime.
Some of those supporting the translation were identified with the left in their day: Albert Einstein, John Gunther one of the translators , Theodore Dreiser, etc.
Reviewer: nismo - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - July 14, Subject: Timely Book. Fantastic piece of literature on a country and a people solidified in their beliefs and culture much unlike American which is now in chaos and economic ruins and so culturally and racially divided it will eat itself alive.
This man should be a beacon of light to America on what a strong country needs. I'm American with German ancestry and disgust in the way America has become and even the way Germany has become and look at France even and proven face a diverse population doesn't make it a strong one.
Been down those roads well be interesting who new supreme leader will be in America to make it great again maybe it has one time will tell. Reviewer: villagehiker - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - April 6, Subject: Mind of Hitler This book presents the mind of Hitler.
It is worth the reading. Hitler talks about injustices in the treaty ending WWI fighting. He also clearly presents his views of history, purity, Judaism, Marxism and more.
He offers solutions to what he sees as problems. Anyone reading this book and its translation in the late s through the late s could hardly claim surprise of what happened in Europe.
If anything, this book read in the light of through may warn us about the dangers of dehumanizing and demonizing people from our shouting platforms built on ideology, partisanship and nationalism.
Overlaying the content on the USA today, it might lessen our support for pplitical parties, bureaucracies and ideologies while increasing our efforts to work for common good, putting the interests of others at least equal to those of our own.

But we need to remember the good and the bad. View all 8 comments. Dec 29, Paul rated it it was ok Shelves: fascism. I read this in as part of my first degree in history whilst doing a course on Modern German History.
The most interesting thing is that this was written without hindsight or from a position of power, or at the time any immediate likelihood of power.
The mix o I read this in as part of my first degree in history whilst doing a course on Modern German History. The mix of ideas following Darwin, combined with Nietzsche superman , the anti-Semitism and eugenics; not to mention all the madcap scientific ideas around and the growth of psychoanalysis.
We sometimes forget that eugenics was very popular and respectable. The list of those advocating some form of eugenics is impressive; H G Wells, Kellogg, Keynes, Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Havelock Ellis, Pauling, Marie Stopes to name a few.
The list in opposition is much shorter. Hitler was influenced these ideas, especially the virulent anti-Semitism.
The Russian Revolution and the rise of Bolshevism were also significant, as was the decadence of the Weimar Republic and the rampant inflation.
Hitler expounds his Jewish conspiracy theories and adapts the racial theories of Haeckel. The rise of Marxist theory he considered, was part of the broader Jewish conspiracy.
Hitler adapted all of this mix into a world view, adding the concept of Lebensraum. This relates to the need for expansion to give the German nation room and space.
It originates from the English and French drive for colonies and the westward expansion in America; it was just applied to Europe by the Nazis.
Everything is there that leads to the gas chamber and genocide. It is easy to laugh at extremists, people certainly laughed at Hitler, but they have to be taken seriously, especially if they capture the mood of the time.
Mein Kampf, when read with our hindsight, is horrific, and the author is vile. However he is the product of people and times slightly less extreme.
Free debate and analysis of ideas and their meaning will usually show up the extremes. Censorship in any form is dangerous; the first thing Hitler did with power was to begin to move against people and ideas he considered a threat to his ideology.
A lesson we need to keep relearning. View all 25 comments. Of course I didn't expect Mein Kampf to be a great book, even within the admittedly narrow antisemitic messianic homoerotic prison genre, but I did expect a little more showmanship.
My German is middling, but I've heard he was all charismatic and persuasive or whatever.

Like, if you were just planning to go out for a stroll and pick up some schnitzel, you'd happen to overhear him on a radio broadcast and all of a sudden you'd be smashing windows, incarcerating Jews, and annexing strategic swaths of Lebensraum before you even knew what you were doing.
He was that powerful. Yeah, we all understand that Hitler didn't have the best taste. He was into retro-Greek kitsch and probably those paintings of clowns and kittens and whaling ships.
All the more reason to expect a semi-entertaining wallow in the muck and mire. Why can't we expect the same from Adolf Hitler?
We expect idiots to entertain us with their idiocy; we don't expect them to be dull. I'll bet Mel Gibson's ghost writer would shit out a much better book.
With more anecdotes about Jodie Foster than your standard-issue xenophobic tract. I just realized I've been misspelling Hitler's first name my whole life as 'Adolph.
Probably the Jews View all 28 comments. Understanding their guidebook might be the best way to beat them at their own game. Many readers today avoid the book to avoid the taint of being seen reading it and also out of fear of perhaps falling under its influence.
That is considered to be playing into the hands of the ones who are willing to use he powerful methods present therein. If the book was indeed a powerfully reasoned piece of work this would have held true.
Instead it turned out to be a pathetic work, which only showcases the workings of a weak mind that constructed all its arguments from pre-conceived notions and never examined the basis of its arguments.
It is clear that Hitler never bothered to understand the core ideas behind evolution, species selection, etc. Darwin had been pretty clear about all this, writing half a century or more before Hitler came up with his tripe.
And it s not because of hasty constructions. Hitler takes all the time n the world and spends most of his book rehashing the same ideas in the same ways again and again.
It is an insufferable drag. And even when he departs from his obsession with race purity and talks of geopolitics and grand strategy, he again jumps to conclusions about Britain, France and Russia that clearly proved to be wrong within his lifetime.
Most of his ideas had to be abandoned in the course of the war. I am sure he came up with great explanations whenever this happened. That is the thing with this kind of 'method'.
There is just no being wrong in it. The real question then is not whether we would buy his arguments but why anyone did.
It is not about reading Hitler to understand how modern Dictators might use the same tactics, but understanding the conditions that allow these pretty rudimentary tactics to succeed and to avoid those conditions.
It requires a grave threat and an almost pathological need to surrender once reason to a raving lunatic, who is willing to be a Führer. The best way yo have a world which rejects its Hitlers is to have a world that is not scared enough to accept without question essentially baseless fascist arguments.
Hitler provides a good litmus test - wherever we see such ideas are getting currency, it might be time to examine what is causing the society to suspend common sense.
Unfortunately, we might not have to look far to see test cases. Many unsupported rants pepper the book, repeated ad nauseam.
A sample: Austria: Everything about it is bad, except the Germans. Should be brought into the fold, but carefully.
Has to be expanded. Germany has been greatly discriminated against after the First World War okay, have to concede this, but it doesn't take a genius to figure that.
Probably just echoing Keynes in any case. German people have suffered enough. It is time for a Great Leader to arise again.
No prizes for guessing who that is! Jews: Always vaguely and conveniently defined. But incontrovertibly the scum of humanity. To be eliminated. Democracy: How can the masses ever rule?
Democracy is only an excuse for rulers to pass on responsibility and avoid taking tough decisions. What a country under there needs is a strong leader who canned do what needs to be done.
To be avoided at all costs. The Masses: The mindless lot. Manipulated and brain washed by the Jews. They have to be emancipated by effective and complete control, by a leader.
Only the weak and the leach-like attempt these activities. The German people to abjure them and take to manly activities that does not suck the life blood of the country and the race.
The Market: Sheer anarchy! Not to be allowed. State has to control production to avoid wastage. Monarchy : Well, not in name, but we need a leader who can recreate the grand Reich of old.
Who cares if it looks exactly like a kingship? Marxism: The scourge of this earth! The tool of the Jews! Initiated by a Jew, what more proof do you need?
Exists only to corrupt the masses. Has to be used only to reach the masses. Should be superseded forthwith after that. The Press: Has to be controlled so that only the state views are set forth.
Otherwise the Jews and the Marxists will take it over and corrupt the public even more. The Races: Have to be preserved and kept apart to prevent dilution, especially the Germanic race of the Aryans.

I am not a nazi sympathizer, anti-semitic, or racist, fascist, or any other variety of colorful names that I have been called for having this on my shelf.
I confess that I was curious about the method to the madness and how such whole sale slaughter of human life could be rationalized.

Get past impressions that are forced down your throat in history class and read it for what it is, a historical text that, like it or not, had a tremendous impact on the world as we know it today.
It is a difficult read and, to be frank, a large percent of the population will not have the fortitude to pick it up off the shelf in a bookstore or be able get past the ideas presented and discard it outright.
One does not have to agree with the author in order to examine the text as a political and social commentary of the time. The important thing, as in so many hot issues, is to keep everything in perspective and make up your own mind.

Many of the comments on here are from biased/ignorant people who have obviously never read this book and want it erased from history.
