First published in 1962, this book examines Germany’s Free Youth Movement, a revolt of the younger generation in Germany from 1896 to 1933. This movement was one of the most significant factors in shaping modern Germany. Laqueur, who grew up in Germany, retraces the history of the movement, its central ideas, and its cultural background. He begins with its origins in 19th century, and goes on to examine the Jewish question, before moving on to the movement’s roots in Germany around the time of the rise of National Socialism in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. This book inspires all the ideas which continue to preoccupy proponents and students of generational conflict today.
