Sometimes on "A Book and a Chat" a book about a something that is well known, yet my guest author still finds a new way to look at the subject. Today was one of those cases, as I presented "A Book and a Chat with Jonathan Maxwell".
In his bookbook "Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS", Jonathan Maxwell sets himself two daunting and urgent tasks—to explain why the Holocaust occurred and to prevent future genocides. In doing so, he takes the reader from the minutest of details about individual Nazis to grandiose narratives about human nature, psychology and civilizati.
In a fasinating show, Jonathon explained how his love for writing and for history had lead him onto a trail of dscovery as he wrote Murderous Intellectuals.
"Murderous Intellectuals: German Elites and the Nazi SS", is packed with insight into the minds, personalities, and the moral compass of the German elites and the Nazi SS. His writing graphically details the results of bigotry, morbid sadism, and the seductive nature of an evil influenced by ethnic hatred, dysfunction, greed, and a hunger for power.
