His book Männerphantasien (1977); translated as Male Fantasies (1987), a study of the fascist consciousness in general and the bodily experience of these former soldiers in particular, easily detected in their hatefilled, near-illiterate books, was well received. Throughout the book Theweleit uses ideas, terminology and empirical experience from works of Margaret Mahler, Wilhelm Reich, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Melanie Klein, and Michel Foucault among others to develop his theory of the fascist male imprinting and socialization. In the introduction Theweleit points out that discussions with Margret Berger and his wife Monika Theweleit-Kubale (both have professional clinical experience) did have an important influence on the book as well as the feedback from Erhard Lucas a leading German left-wing historian of the Weimar Unrest.
