Do we have any citations to network literature that could add longitudinal insight, such as via the volkish Youth Movement of 1890-1920?  The Youth would have become older on into 1919-1933, of course, and some of them would be among the actors in those networks of the 1920s.

The topic of "Nazi networking" was first well documented in 1965 by William Sheridan Allen in his book "The Nazi Seizure of Power".  
Allen focuses on a micro level -- how the local societies/clubs were infiltrated and then "turned" in one particular small German town.

Claude:  You beat me to it.  I'm sure this new paper is great but this is well-trod territory.  I was going to point to that paper as well as the work of Jason Kaufman, in the US.  See http://www.amazon.com/For-Common-Good-American-Fraternity/.  (Another way to say it is that Klansmen had plenty of social capital).  Other work that comes to mind is by Scorsese, M. or De Copolla, F.  A lot of bonding social capital among the 5 Families….

The work of Dylan Riley (2010: The Civic Foundations of Fascism in
Europe: Italy, Spain, and Romania 1870-1945; 2005: "Civic Associations
and Authoritarian Regimes in Inter-War Europe: Italy and Spain in
Comparative Perspective." American Sociological Review 70: 288-310) made
a similar argument.
