Críticas:

"This admirable biography makes plausible what actually happened and makes human what we might prefer to dismiss as monstrous."-Timothy Snyder, Wall Street Journal "Supremely enlightening."-Jacob Heilbrunn, The New York Times Book Review "Gerwarth's approach is subtle, painstaking and psychologically acute; it convincingly demonstrates that the historian's tool of 'cold empathy' best clarifies the enduring question of what brings forth monsters."-Roy Foster, Times Literary Supplement (Books of the Year) "Hitler's Hangman: The Life of Heydrich by Robert Gerwarth is superb on the making of evil."-Frank Dikotter, The Daily Telegraph (Books of the Year) "At the subsequent grand public funeral, Nazi leaders eulogized Heydrich as the perfect Nazi. This intelligent and readable biography shows how he had made himself into one, and Gerwarth explains persuasively what motivated Heydrich to do so."-Richard J. Evans, Times Higher Education ". . . two splendid biographies. There have been lives written before, but nothing to match the exceptional way that Peter Longerich and Robert Gerwarth . . . have gone about digging in the sources to root these two awful figures more firmly in the context that gave rise to some of the worst crimes of the modern age. It is unlikely that either of these biographies will be bettered."-Richard Overy, The Sunday Telegraph (reviewed with 'Heinrich Himmler: A Life' by Peter Longerich) "[A] probing biography. . . . Gerwarth's fine study shows in chilling detail how genocide emerged from the practicalities of implementing a demented belief system."-Publishers Weekly "Robert Gerwarth's Hitler's Hangman: The Life of Heydrich is the outstanding definitive scholarly and heartbreakingly horrible biography of the repellent mastermind of the Holocaust."-Simon Sebag Montefiore, BBC History Magazine (Books of the Year) "[Gerwarth] opts for strategy of 'cold empathy,' engaging his subject with 'critical distance' while attempting to assess his behaviour in context rather than in the light of what we know it led to. This approach, in contrast to the sensational popular biographies, produces some genuine surprises."-David Cesarani, Literary Review "In an illuminating account, Robert Gerwarth relates new anecdotes from Heydrich's private life and his deeds as head of the Nazi Reich Security Main Office to shed light on his complex character."-Gavin Englebrecht, Northern Echo "With his cold intelligence and utter ruthlessness, it is sometimes suggested he would have made a redoubtable Fuhrer and formidable enemy. In this riveting biography, Gerwarth shows just how plausible that claim is."-Guy Walters, The Mail on Sunday "To write a truly splendid biography of a truly evil man is a remarkable achievement. Gerwarth develops a rounded picture of a personality who set out to establish a centralised SS state. He displays enough empathy for his subject not exactly to evoke sympathy (fortunately) but to make the seemingly incomprehensible comprehensible."-Hew Strachan, Irish Times ". . . as definitive a biography of Hitler's Hangman as there is ever likely to be."-Geoffrey Roberts, Irish Examiner ". . . an admirable contribution . . . a unique perspective and insight into the development and radicalization of the Nazi regime and its rule."-Dr Dorothy Mas, Reviews in History "Gerwarth tells this complex take with considerable aplomb. He writes with real verve, pacing his account well and providing the perfect mix of narrative and analysis. Pleasingly, he is not shy of indulging in a few dramatic flourishes when the material and the circumstances allow, making this a history book that one can genuinely read almost in a single sitting. . . . He has succeeded admirably in remedying the lack of a scholarly biography of Reinhard Heydrich, one of the most pivotal and influential figures in the history of the Third Reich. [Gerwarth's] work has set a new standard by which subsequent biographies of Hitler's 'Blond Beast' will surely be measured."-Roger Moorhouse, History Today "Drawing on profound research, Robert Gerwarth presents a penetrating, authoritative analysis of the ruthless personality and murderous career of the man who directed the Third Reich's police state and became a driving-force in the programme to exterminate Europe's Jews."-Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler "Evil is a word used too lightly in our times and in historical review. Yet, in his splendid biography of Heydrich, Robert Gerwarth allows us to see what evil means in its subtlety and complexity, its seeming reasonableness on occasion, its starkness and its terror. Reading Hitler's Hangman makes plain why, in our eternal wrestling with the question where by the grace of God might we be going, historical reckoning, even for the most appalling of war criminals, is a more satisfactory and richer approach than is legal prosecution."-R.J.B. Bosworth, author of Mussolini "An excellent book on a major figure in the Nazi dictatorship, its secret police and the Holocaust. Gerwarth's illumination of the development of the security complex under Heydrich, his actions in the Protectorate, and especially the war in the East, is of real value."-Tim Kirk, author of Nazi Germany

Reseña del editor:

A chilling biography of the head of Nazi Germany's terror apparatus, a key player in the Third Reich whose full story has never before been told Reinhard Heydrich is widely recognized as one of the great iconic villains of the twentieth century, an appalling figure even within the context of the Nazi leadership. Chief of the Nazi Criminal Police, the SS Security Service, and the Gestapo, ruthless overlord of Nazi-occupied Bohemia and Moravia, and leading planner of the "Final Solution," Heydrich played a central role in Hitler's Germany. He shouldered a major share of responsibility for some of the worst Nazi atrocities, and up to his assassination in Prague in 1942, he was widely seen as one of the most dangerous men in Nazi Germany. Yet Heydrich has received remarkably modest attention in the extensive literature of the Third Reich. Robert Gerwarth weaves together little-known stories of Heydrich's private life with his deeds as head of the Nazi Reich Security Main Office. Fully exploring Heydrich's progression from a privileged middle-class youth to a rapacious mass murderer, Gerwarth sheds new light on the complexity of Heydrich's adult character, his motivations, the incremental steps that led to unimaginable atrocities, and the consequences of his murderous efforts toward re-creating the entire ethnic makeup of Europe.
