The authors’ various contributions are grouped together in five sections. As already mentioned, the first part of this volume brings together key controversial positions on the question of Volksgemeinschaft. The rest of the essays test the potential of the Volksgemeinschaft approach by taking in-depth probes in a range of fields, placing different levels of stress on the dimensions and modes of the National Socialist Volksgemeinschaft idea and its appropriations. The essays in Part II describe how the National Socialist authorities set new normative values and established a framework for communication and concrete action, using policies inspired by the Volksgemeinschaft idea.

Other tried and tested approaches are better suited to describing the regime’s characteristics, some of these critics say.
