"Cinema and the Swastika: The International Expansion of Third Reich Cinema" is now available in paperback. This revised paperback edition investigates various attempts by Nazi Germany to infiltrate the film industries of a variety of countries and regions, including Western and Central Europe, Italy, Japan, Scandinavia, Spain, South America, the USA and, in a new chapter, the occupied Eastern Territories (Soviet Union, Baltic States and Poland).

Vande Winkel, Roel & Welch, David (eds). 

Cinema and the Swastika. The International Expansion of Third Reich Cinema. 

Hampshire - New York, Palgrave MacMillan, 2011, 384 pages.

'A revelatory book which transforms our sense of German and European film history'

(Katie Trumpener, Yale University, USA)

'....a pioneering work that seeks to inspire others to delve deeper into the operational procedures and artistic aspirations of international film-makers in the 12 years following the Nazi accession to power...the standard text on the subject.'

(David Parkinson, The Oxford Times, UK)

'The crude moralizing that limits the scholarly value of so many studies of Nazi film propaganda is thankfully absent. The individual chapters, based on primary sources, provide outstanding guides to each country, and its experience with Third Reich film imports. Detailed footnotes suggest additional ways to enrich scholarly understanding of the subject'

(Martin Loiperdinger, Trier University, Germany)
'Cinema and the Swastika was rightfully awarded the Willy Haas Award for outstanding publication on German cinema at Cinefest 2007 in Hamburg. The contributions are stimulating, informative, and jargon-free. This book belongs in the reference collection of anyone engaged in the study of German politics, culture or film history from 1933 until 1945.'

(Horst Claus, "Filmblatt", Germany)

'The chapters address the complex issues that surround the international dimension of Third Reich Cinema and thus reinvigorate academic discourses dealing with this controversial era. Strongly recommended.'

(Tobias Hochscherf, "Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television")
