Hitler’s Geographies, Nazi Spatialities

(p.1) Introduction
Hitler's Geographies

Paolo Giaccaria

Claudio Minca

University of Chicago Press

In order to present the structure and the aims of the book, the introduction discusses the formulation and the employment of some of the most important Nazi spatialities and links them to the deployment of biopolitical strategies and geopolitical projections. This is done through four moments/movements that tentatively correspond to the four sections in which the book is organized, from (1) the formulation of grand spatial theories, to (4) their extreme genocidal endgames, passing through (2) the hailing and interpellation of spatial and racial experts and (3) the actual production of Empire in Europe and beyond. This introduction is thus also the locus where the respective sections and contributions making up Hitler’s Geographies are tied together within a comprehensive geographical reading of the spatialities of the Third Reich.
