Over the past couple of decades, the role of entertainment and leisure has occupied an increasingly prominent place in historical research, nowhere more so than in the vast literature on Nazi Germany. By and large the picture that has emerged highlights the necessity of even as repressive a regime as that of the Nazis to cater to popular cultural expectations. The fact that these expectations and desires very often revolve around some sense of pleasure is the basic rationale behind this unique collection of essays. As a means of social stabilization and political acquiescence, pleasure arguably promised far greater returns than repression or indoctrination ever could. This volume explores the role of pleasure and pleasure-seeking in the Third Reich, the meanings ascribed to it and the ways in which they interacted with other priorities and necessities in social and political life
"Although we associate the Third Reich above all with suffering, pain, and fear, pleasure played a central role in its social and cultural dynamics. This book explores the relationship between the rationing of pleasures as a means of political stabilization and the pressure on the Nazi regime to cater to popular cultural expectations"-- Provided by publisher
