Riassunto: The Myth of the Twentieth Century (German: Der Mythus des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts) by Alfred Rosenberg, one of the principal ideologues of the Nazi party and editor of the Nazi paper Völkischer Beobachter. It was the most influential Nazi text after Hitler's Mein Kampf. The titular "myth" is "the myth of blood, which under the sign of the swastika unchains the racial world-revolution. It is the awakening of the race soul, which after long sleep victoriously ends the race chaos. In this, his seminal work, Alfred Rosenberg offers the reader a genuine alternative to the political and spiritual attitudes which modern Western society leads us to believe are our only options. From every center of power today we are told that we MUST accept democracy as the only "good" form of government, that we MUST choose either the Judeo-Christian tradition, the New Age movement, or secular humanism as our faith, and that we MUST look to either Adam Smith or Karl Marx for economic wisdom. In "The Myth of the Twentieth Century," Rosenberg takes aim at all of these assumptions and presents us with a worldview entirely different from any of those based upon them--one with its roots deep in those primeval affective, aesthetic, and intellectual inclinations characteristic of the Caucasian race. He argues powerfully for an organic polity as opposed to a Universalist one--most specifically in the Germany of his time--but more generally for Western Civilization as a whole. At the heart of his argument is the provocative thesis that each of the races of the human species possesses a different kind of "soul," which is the origin of human cultural diversity. Environmental influences cannot account for the differences in style and achievement among the races, he argues; the respective environmental conditions under which they have lived have been far too similar to admit of such an explanation. Advancements in the scientific understanding of genetics made since Rosenberg's death, moreover, lend weight to his thesis and make it well worth a thoughtful look. "The Myth of the Twentieth Century" will be of interest to those searching for their identity and its significance amid the anomic trends of contemporary Western life, as well as those looking for a socially relevant philosophy with some depth as an alternative to Establishment prejudices and platitudes.

Sinossi:

Regarded as the second most important book to come out of Nazi Germany, Alfred Rosenberg?s Der Mythus des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts is a philosophical and political map which outlines the ideological background to the Nazi Party and maps out how that party viewed society, other races, social ordering, religion, art, aesthetics and the structure of the state.

The ?Mythus? to which Rosenberg (who was also editor of the Nazi Party newspaper) refers was the concept of blood, which, according to the preface, ?unchains the racial world-revolution.?

Rosenberg?s no-hold barred depiction of the history of Christianity earned it the accusation that it was anti-Christian, and that unjustified controversy overshadowed the most interesting sections of the book which deal with the world racial situation and the demand for racially homogenous states as the only method to preserve individual world cultures.

Rosenberg was hanged at Nuremberg on charges of ?waging wars of aggression? even though he had never served in the military, and it is likely that he was hanged purely because of this book.

"Often cited, but long neglected, Alfred Rosenberg's Myth of the Twentieth Century represents the most ambitious attempt to present a historical, racial philosophy of National Socialism. While not the Nazi Summa Theologica it has sometimes been mischaracterized as, only Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf exceeded The Myth of the Twentieth Century in authority - and in commercial success - as a statement of the values and aims of the National Socialist movement during the Third Reich." lvi + 470 pages with index.
