German republication of Hitler's 'Mein Kampf' causes furor

A controversial book by one of Germany's bestselling authors will be republished next week: Adolf Hitler's “Mein Kampf.”

The new two-volume edition of “Mein Kampf,” filled with 3,700 critical annotations by historians that are designed to demystify Hitler’s propaganda, will be back in bookstores Jan. 8 -- just one week after the 70-year copyright on the original text expired Dec. 31.

It will end a postwar ban in Germany on the anti-Semitic, race-based manifesto that sold 12.4 million copies in the nation from 1925 to 1945 and was translated into 18 foreign languages.
