Summary Chs. 4-6 (pp. 50-125) deal with the influence of the Russian pre- and post-revolutionary Right on the development of Nazi ideology. Antisemitic conspiracy ideas about the role of Jews as revolutionaries were brought to Germany by the Baltic emigres Max Ervin von Scheubner-Richter and the better-known Alfred Rosenberg, the Nazi expert on Russia. These two contributed to Nazism the identification of Jews with Bolsheviks. Shows how German antisemitic ideas of the 1880s that had been imported into Russia after 1917 were reimported into Germany, supplemented by Black Hundred pogromist and even eliminationist elements. The Nazis thus added the view of the Jews as aiming at world domination, via a clever combination of capitalism and revolution, to their German racism. The latter, which was directed against Slavs as well as Jews, kept almost all right-wing Russian emigres from being accepted as Nazi allies even though the former had introduced and popularized "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in Germany. This book was an inspiration for Hitler's "Mein Kampf."
