Reviews

“With the completion of this work Ganyard has placed another stone in the increasingly complex mosaic of the Weimar political culture and party history.” – Prof. Larry Eugene Jones, Canisius College

“[The author] does an excellent job tracing the intellectual and cultural forces that shaped Mahraun’s own world view and the ideology behind the Young German Order.” – Prof. Barry Jackisch, University of Saint Francis

“ . . . I can state with confidence that Ganyard’s manuscript fills a void in the literature.” – Prof. Brian Crim, Caldwell College
