Mein Kampf

A critical assessment of Adolph Hitler’s work and how it reflects the social and economic climate of its time.

Adolph Hitler’s classic treatise on philosophy entitled “Mein Kampf” is believed to demonstrate the political views of Hitler himself, and therefore can be used as a means to evaluate the personality of Hitler and the relevance of his views to the political and social climate of the time. This paper critically assesses “Mein Kampf” as a means of examining Hitler’s personality and the social environment of the day, and how this generated Hitler’s own unique perspectives on fascism. Outside sources shall be used to supplement this assessment.
