Mein Kampf Surging in E-Book Sales

The curious can read what Hitler had to say without risking public judgment

Adolf Hitler's anti-Semitic political testament "Mein Kampf" is surging up electronic book bestseller lists, even as sales of the printed version have been stagnant for years.

As of Wednesday, two electronic versions of "Mein Kampf" ranked 12th and 15th in the Politics & Current events section of the iTunes book store. On Amazon, Hitler's polemic ranked number one in the Propaganda & Political psychology section. There are currently six e-book versions of "Mein Kampf."

One explanation offered for the surge in electronic sales concerns the relative anonymity offered by e-books as compared to their printed counterparts.
