Mein Kampf ( My Struggle ) is a political manifesto written by Adolf Hitler. It was his only complete book and became the bible of National Socialism in the German Third Reich. It was published in two volumes, which dated 1925 and 1927. By 1939 it had sold 5,200,000 copies and had been translated into 11 different languages. The first volume, entitled Die Abrechnung ( The Settlement of Accounts, or Revenge ), was written in 1924 in the Bavarian fortress of Landsberg am Lech. Hitler was imprisoned there after the unsuccessful Beer Hall Putsch of 1923. It describes the world of Hitlers youth, the First World War and the betrayal of Germany in 1918. It also expresses Hitlers Racial ideology. According to Hitler, it was necessary for Germans to occupy themselves not merely with the breeding of cats, dogs and horses - but also care for the health and wellbeing of their own Bloodline. The second volume, entitled Die Nationalsozialistische Bewegung ( The National Socialist Movement ), was written after Hitlers release from prison in December 1924. It outlines the political program of National Socialism and includes the measures that National Socialism must pursue in both gaining power and in exercising it thereafter in the new German Reich. In this book Hitler describes an ideology which according to him must shake the world from its slumber. An ideology which is based on the Eternal Laws of Nature. Here you can notice how the foundations of Social Darwinism have been applied in practice. This book has set a path toward a much higher understanding of the self and of our magnificent destiny as living beings part of this Race on our planet. It shows us that we must not look at nature in terms of good or bad, but in an unfiltered manner. It describes what we must do if we want to survive as a people and as a Race. We have to understand that Nature does not forgive weakness and that the truth and reality is what it is, no matter how bad it may seem or how hard it can portray itself. This book shows the foundations of White Resistance and White Nationalism. It is the foundation and seed for the preservation of our Race. Be advised that this book does not represent the full Racialist ideology, but it is only a foundation as the Origin of Species is a foundation for the Theory of Evolution.

Reviews for Mein Kampf

This is the big sensation of the month, and all eyes are on the legal battle over the two editions. It is not within our province to pass judgment on the case. We simply wish to announce the distinguishing features of the two books, both complete, unabridged editions of the most discussed book in the world today. Reynal & Hitchcock, in conjunction with Houghton, Mifflin, are issuing their translation by Dr. Alvin Johnson, with careful annotations by eminent scholars and publicists. The details are laid forth in the February 4th P.W., including the publishers' statement in regard to the matter of royalties to Germany and profits to the refugees. The promotion plans are also outlined, and the advance sale indicates that it will be possible to back the publication with a tremendous nation-wide advertising campaign. Publication set for early March. Price $3.00 .... Suit has been brought against Stackpole and due warning issued by Houghton, Mifflin. The fact that no royalties are being paid to Hitler has resulted in a big advance on this Stackpole edition, a translation by Barrows Mussey. (Kirkus Reviews)
