Pauley shows that the Austrian Nazis were not compliant servants to the German Nazi party and that they controlled a fascinating movement troubled by contradictions between perverted idealism and violence. Pauley analyzes the Austrian Nazi party's social composition, leadership problems, slow growth in the 1920s, response to the Great depression, propaganda, structure, SS and SA activities, resistance to the German party, and contribution to the Anschluss of 1938.
