About this book

Oppression and violence are often cited as the pivotal aspects of modern dictatorships, but it is the collusion of large majorities that enable these regimes to function. The desire for a better life and a powerful national, if not imperial community provide the basis for the many forms of people's cooperation explored in this volume.

Reviews

“The volume edited by Lüdtke is as a highly stimulating and thought provoking contribution on everyday life under mass dictatorships. It succeeds in giving a new twist to the protracted historiographical debates on the agency of the ‘masses’ … . The volume thus reveals the intersections between the everyday life in the classic totalitarian regimes and in colonial/postcolonial settings.” (Ángel Alcalde, German Studies Review, Vol. 40 (2), May, 2016)
