The popularity of "Mein Kampf" in Germany. A literary critique of the book. The importance of the book to anyone interested in the future of Europe, and the future of the world. What Hitler's book reveals. Different editions of the book for each country in which it is available. One of the main points of Hitler's policy as expressed in "Mein Kampf" and what it means. Hitler's disinterest in the German minorities in other countries, if that is politically expedient. No doubts about what Hitler wants. The whole problem of minorities a pretext to aid the Nazis to attack other nations. How the minorities have served Hitler's purposes, for instance in the shameless military intervention of Germany in Spain. The seizure of power in Austria in 1938. The "liberated" people of the Sudetenland to suffer the same experience as the Austrians. What making friends with the Nazis means. The experience of Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna who hoped to save Catholicism in Austria by making friends with the Nazi regime: a warning to several European statesmen. Nazis as the deadly enemies of our whole civilization. The spurious notion that Germans are a pure race. The ideas of the Nazis which prevent any kind of a profound discussion. The lack of any possibility of coming to terms with them. Help and sympathy needed by the German minorities. Reasons why the Nazis were able to come to power. The significance in many respects of Hitler's hatred against the Jewish race. How the persecution of the religious and racial minorities in Germany concern the entire civilization. Resistance against Nazification. After Hitler falls, the new order.
