Summary or Abstract : The problem is that the socio-psychological aspects of the great German inflation have not been afforded sufficient scholarly attention. Hence, my dissertation focuses on the socio-psychological impact of the German hyperinflation of 1922/23. In an effort to cope with the stressful person-environment relationship caused by the mark's collapse, countless Germans engaged in "direct action." Direct action is expressed primarily through the dual responses of escape and attack . Some of the socio-psychological phenomena most characteristic of the German hyperinflation, like large-scale emigration, the rise in the number of suicides, and the higher levels of devotion accorded to occult sects and quasi-religious circles can be seen as forms of escape. At the same time, evidence pointing to the attack category is visible in some of the more combative modes of behavior tied to the incessant price hikes, in the growing intensity of political radicalism on both the Right and Left, widespread social protest, and epidemic crime. My study confirms that 1922/23 witnessed a considerable increase in the attack and escape responses or coping behaviors described above. Besides providing a powerful recruitment tool for the National Socialist movement, this hyperinflationary "pre-history," and the socio-psychological trauma that accompanied it, placed an economic straitjacket on the policy options of the Bruening administration (1930-1932), whose failure (and/or inability) to lessen the suffering caused by the Great Depression paved the way for Hitler's ascension to power in January 1933..
