Bismarck's Shadow targets this idea, as it is a book that unearths a fascinating phenomenon of German political culture - the elevation of a dead political figure, Otto von Bismarck, to the level of a demi-god and the effects of such deification on the course of German politics during the first half of the 20th century." "Bismarck's Shadow raises long overdue questions about the political religion of National Socialism, Germany's perceptions about Bismarck, and the relationship between Otto von Bismarck and Adolf Hitler."--Jacket.
