520    German scholars were early pioneers in folklore and 
       historical linguistics. As the Nazis rose to power, 
       however, these disciplines were distorted into racist 
       pseudoscience. Under the direction of Heinrich Himmler's 
       SS-Ahnenerbe (Ancestral Inheritance), folklore became a 
       tool for constructing a unified German realm and a 
       manufactured lineage from ancient and "pure" Germanic and 
       Nordic blood. Drawing on extensive research in public and 
       private archives and interviews with family members of 
       fieldworkers, James R. Dow uncovers both details of the SS
       cultural commissions' work and the continuing vestiges of 
       the materials they assembled. Teams of poorly qualified 
       and ideologically motivated collectors were sent to South 
       Tyrol in Italy and Gottschee in Slovenian Yugoslavia, from
       which ethnically German communities were to be resettled 
       in the German Reich. Although a mass of information on 
       narratives, songs and dances, beliefs, customs, local 
       clothing and architecture, and folk speech was collected, 
       the research was deeply tainted and skewed by racialist 
       and nationalist preconditions. Dow sharply critiques the 
       continued use of these ersatz archives
