Abstract

Few regimes in twentieth‐century history have received more study than Nazi Germany. That horrifically flawed government has been researched, studied, analyzed, and taught since it came to power. You might imagine that there is nothing new to say about Nazis. But, as Robert M. Jarvis shows in Gambling Under the Swastika,1 that is wrong, as his new book provides a great deal of information about gambling during the Third Reich that is not widely known.
