Geyer, Michael and Sheila Fitzpatrick, eds. Beyond Totalitarianism: Stalinism and Nazism Compared. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2009. ix + 536 pp. ISBN: 978-0-52172397-8 (ppb.); 978-0-521-89796-9 (hbk.). Since the end of the Cold War, there is a renewed interest in totalitarianism--the concept and its applicability to the fascist and communist regimes. Archives previously closed are now open, and there are no longer political taboos that hamper the research and interpretation of findings in this area of inquiry. Many scholars therefore took up the challenge to rethink the concept of totalitarianism. Michael Geyer and Sheila Fitzpatrick's recent work, Beyond Totalitarianism: Stalinism and Nazism Compared, fits well within this trend, of looking at this contested notion in a new light. Geyer and Fitzpatrick assert that it is possible to compare Nazism and Stalinism on more equal terms than ever before, and that it is finally possible to begin thinking historically about Stalinism and Nazism. Beyond Totalitarianism serves another aim as well. In the introduction, Geyer, with the assistance of Fitzpatrick, claims that the intention of this book is to add something new to the numerous existing volumes on totalitarianism. They wanted to write something that departs from and reinvents traditional comparisons
