Behemoth by Franz Neumann

"Behemoth" is a comprehensive analysis of the structure and practice of National Socialism in Germany from its rise to its peak during World War II. The book delves into the political, economic, and social frameworks that defined the Nazi regime, arguing that it represented a new form of totalitarianism marked by chaotic governance, industrial monopolies, and the fusion of state and party under despotic rule. The author critically examines how these elements led to aggressive expansionism and the systematic extermination of Jews and other minorities, ultimately asserting that the regime's inherent contradictions contributed to its downfall.
