Major changes have been taking place in the context of German Studies in both secondary and higher education, with the focus shifting to a broader range of cultural forms. Based on the view that cultures are the products of class, place, gender, and race, German Cultural Studies: An Introduction takes account of these changes and adopts an interdisciplinary approach in its wide-ranging study of German culture and society since 1871, emphasizing recent and contemporary developments.
Chronological sections on Imperial Germany, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the German Democratic Republic, and the Federal Republic chart the growth of modernism and the culture industry in Germany, and examine the extent to which culture in any given period functions as an instrument of ideological manipulation or critical enlightenment. Throughout, the emphasis is on the interactions of culture in both public and private consciousnesses.
Copiously illustrated, and with guidance for further reading, the volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern and contemporary German society and its culture.

Review:

`The essays constitute a body of informed, detailed and lucid cultural history ... the weaving together of cultural, economic and political information presents the reader with a many-sided impression of the factors at play in Germany at almost any given point this century. Few people will fail to learn something from this collection, and it is easy to envisage a variety of uses for it in various areas of undergraduate teaching.' Journal of European Studies

`This book, like its companion volumes in French and Spanish, deserves a warm welcome. The strength of the present book lies in its new treatment of the history and sociology of culture. The volume is a mine of useful, even dispensable information and should be required reading for students of German.' Rodney Livingstone, German Politics

`An excellent textbook.' Hyde Price University of Birmingham.

`This is a highly polished, scholarly work to be read carefully, and line by line. A wonderful book.' Susanne B. Kimball, Germanic Notes and Reviews.
