Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Discreet Charm of the Police State contains a list of reference sources and articles. The book argues for the persistence of a regime of authoritarian policing in Bavaria during the first two decades after the Second World War. It examines the close relationship between this phenomenon and the modernization and transformation of postwar Germany’s largest and most historically “authentic” state, as Bavaria underwent a rapid passage from defeat and occupation to the swift emergence of a suburbanized, post-agricultural society after the catastrophes of the midtwentieth century.

Keywords: authoritarian policing; Bavaria; post-agricultural society
