    • Mein Kampf
      • Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, was published in 1925 and, because of the publicity from Hitler's trial, it became a best seller.
    • Agricultural areas
      • From 1928, the Nazis focused much more on winning support in agricultural areas.
        • This was because of the depression, which had affected farming throughout the 1920s and worsened in 1927 with a further slump in food prices.
