The study reveals main causes behind the National Socialism. The author has paid particular attention to historical, socioeconomic, intellectual and socio-political factors which contributed to development of this movement. The research has proved that the National Socialism is not a mere revolt against reason, irrational movement of masses, but it is a totalitarian revolution against the existing liberal bourgeois system. The issue of Adolf Hitler’s role in success of the National Socialism remains controversial.
