I think it might be also lack of visibility. I was told about this book by friend who recommended it, not yet received it.
 
And I think I have already signed up for Creation mailinglist, but not sure since I never got any news.
If promotion only happens via website, sold direct to customers, I think eventually it creates as low profile as in... lets say "noise". Few enthusiasts know, rest don't have a clue of existence of some publication. I have the feeling, that years ago, if you followed noise/industrial, you pretty much found out about Feral House, Creation, Headpress, perhaps even Loompanics. Especially if you followed mailorder catalogues like Artware. Now, I see people who used to buy the stuff, being utterly clueless that Sotos put out like 5 new books and bunch of other interesting titles came out on mentioned publishers. But, in other hand, one can wonder what else to do? I'm sure for example Creation isn't pricey or low profile out of spite. Just the best way to keep it going for them.

SEX, DEATH, SWASTIKAS: NAZI EXPLOITATION SSINEMA

http://www.creationbooks.com/creation-titles/SEXDEATHSWASTIKAS.html

Finally got mine in the mail a few weeks ago.  Great book; only 50 hardcovers made and 100 softcovers(!).
Not quite as good as the heavily illustrated color and b/w Italian Nocturno book/magazine SPECIALE EROSSVASTIKA: IL NAZI ALL'ITALIANA, but SEX, DEATH, SWASTIKAS is in english and is still available.  I only got #22/100 of the softcover.  It's hard to believe so few people are dedicated to this sub-genre(?!).
Thanks for the tip! Just ordered a copy. I had not heard of this book before. The best sub-genre along with nunsploitation.

Some years ago i would have been all over a book like that Nazisploitation one, but have lost interest in the genre, still a bit tempting though... Does it cover the Eurociné titles like SPECIALTRAIN FOR HITLER, NATHALIE RESCUED FROM HELL and maybe even COMMANDO MENGELE?? What doesi it say about the obscure LIEBES LAGER?

Also, are there anything from producers/directors or actors trying to justify the genre? I find the most interesting thing about the nazisplotation films being that they ever got made... from what i understand the Italian films where no big hits either, except for NIGHT PORTER. What audience were they aiming at? Did the films screen in porno-theatres (for instance LOVE CAMP 27 with hardcore-scenes) and if so what did that audience think of them....?

Daniel´s book about swedish trash is sure to be a very nice read! I guess only let down for non-swedes will be that so many of the covered films will be hard to find with subtitles, but for many of them reading a little about the film is quite enough...

hilarious that you ask about the eurocine titles... that's the first thing i asked rodger stella when he gave me the heads up that the book was available.  my irrational obsession for pamela stanford and monica swinn (shamless plug: watch for THE PAMELA, THE MONICA 7" coming soon) has me collecting all i can with either actress.  it does in fact include the eurocine titles, that after much fetishizing i champion over all else SS film genre related, but the author thinks their pretty bland.  the best coverage i've seen of the Eurocine films (even though some are simply franco-'related') is in ETC, 99 DONNE, JESS FRANCO CHRONICLES, SPECIALE EROSSVASTIKA: IL NAZI ALL'ITALIANA and the Stanford and Swinn articles in SEX STARS SYSTEM.  I haven't come across Bianchi's MENGELE yet, but LOVE CAMP is in there.  He covers a few of the SS inspired porn loops from the 70s and D'Amatos XXX 90s films, and even news reel collections.  Many historical anecdotes and interesting stories in there as well; from Bogarde's experiences on the set of THE NIGHT PORTER to the 'real-life Ilsa' Irma Grese - "The Bitch of Belsen".

Haha, yes, the Eurociné stuff sure has it´s twisted charm! COMMANDO MENGELE isn´t much of a nazi film really, but the image of Howard Vernon/Hitler is cool., specially considering that Vernon apparently was some sort of collaborator during the ocupation of France (hosted a radio-show or something like that i believe it was).
Monica Swinn is quite a woman, she sets the men in their place for sure! Can´t go wrong with Pamela S. either.
Damn, i get my old feelings back up, maybe should grab that book after all... Anecdotes sounds like fun and I´d like to read something about LIBES LAGER, to me maybe the most un-tasteful of them all (but it is a close call with the authentic concentration camp footage in WOMENS CAMP 119 and the hardcore rapes of NAZI LOVE CAMP 27), moronic slapstick, fall-on-the-arse, comedy in concentration camp... well...

Thanks to those discussing the above mentioned book. Didn't know about it but now it's happily ordered. Having little exposure to the genre I hope this will help point me in the right direction.

Went to a sexploitation movie poster exhibition yesterday and met Jimmy Pantera, co-author of two great books Orgasmo Vol. 1 & 2. The books are about old sexploitation movie posters and they were recently(?) published by Serious Publishing (http://www.serious-publishing.fr/en/index.php). Soft cover books with all text (not that much text in these, they really concentrate on the posters themselves) in both French and English, and plenty of great pictures of movie posters, movie stills and lobby cards.

Each book has a few themes. Vol 1 has bad girls, film noir, for nudists only, mondo and sexy horror. Vol 2 has jungle goddess, tortured, trans-genre, hygiene pictures and big busty babes.

MIDNIGHT MAVERICKS by Gene Gregorits should be mentioned here. It's mostly reprints from Sex & Guts magazine, which he did with Lydia Lunch for awhile. There's also a Sex & Guts book.

His HATCHET JOB anthology has interviews with Jim Van Beeber, Abel Ferrara, Lech Kowalski,  and probably some others. It's 800 pages, so I still have a lot to go through.

Read this a while a go. Highly recommended.
