With a new preface by the author

In his most powerful and important book, renowned psychiatrist Robert Jay Lifton presents a brilliant analysis of the crucial role that German doctors played in the Nazi genocide. Now updated with a new preface, The Nazi Doctors remains the definitive work on the Nazi medical atrocities, a chilling exposé of the banality of evil at its epitome, and a sobering reminder of the darkest side of human nature.

"A powerful reminder not only of what happened, but of the monumental evil done by particular human beings who were trained to heal and cure."—Robert Coles, Boston Globe
"This is not only one of the most important works on medical ethics yet written. It also breaks through the frontiers of historiography to provide a convincing psychological interpretation of the Third Reich and the crimes of National Socialism. No one will be able in my view to write perceptively about those times in the future without referring to this interpretation."—Neal Ascherson, New York Review of Books
"A must read.... The book as a whole stands without competition in the English language."—Raul Hilberg, author of Destruction of the European Jews
"This profound study ranks with the most insightful books on the Holocaust."—PublishersWeekly
