Abstract

The notion of Lebensraum is commonly associated with National-Socialist ideology of the 1930s and 1940s, but ideas of racial living space were generated in earlier decades by an international community of explorers and academics. Focusing on Sven Hedin, one of the most influential figures in this group, the author uses printed and unprinted sources, such as Hedin’s diaries. This book connects the geographical community to the intellectual history of the development of National-Socialist ideology and genocidal practices. It contributes to studies of the pro-German intellectual elite and its world view during the first half of the 20th century. – (HC)
