Latest reviews

  • “Refreshingly tart...Free to Obey’s evidence of how Nazism has inspired our work culture is as relevant as the media’s concern for the rise of neo-Nazi groups.”
    — The Arts Fuse, Jun 1 2023
  • “Eye-opening... French historian Johann Chapoutot traces an astonishing continuity: from the social Darwinism of the Victorian age, to modern supermarket logistics, via the Nazis.”
    — Sunday Telegraph, Apr 16 2023
