Summary
"Sometimes the smallest detail reveals the most about a culture. In Heil Hitler: The History of a Gesture, sociologist Tilman Allert uses the Nazi transformation of the most mundane human interaction, the greeting, to show how National Socialism brought about the submission and conformity of a whole society. Made compulsory in 1933, the Hitler salute developed into a daily reflex in a matter of mere months, and quickly became the norm in schools, at work, among friends, and even at home. Adults denounced neighbors who refused to raise their arms, and children were given tiny Hitler dolls with movable right arms so they could practice the pernicious salute. The constantly reiterated declaration of loyalty at once controlled public transactions and fractured personal relationships. And always, the greeting sacralized Hitler, investing him and his regime with a divine aura."--Publishers description

Summary
Provides a critical look at the origins, history, and dissemination of the infamous Heil Hitler salute in Nazi Germany from its compulsory adoption in 1933, assessing its meaning in terms of a symbol of loyalty to the Nazi regime, as a means of vesting Hitler with a divine aura, and as a ritual of consent that paved the way for the erosion of social morality
