Engages readers with a narrative, problem-focused approach.
Covering the entire period of modern German history—from nineteenth century imperial Germany right through the present—this well-established text presents a balanced, general survey of the country's political division in 1945 and runs through its reunification in the present. Detailing foreign policy as well as political, economic and social developments, A History of Modern Germany presents a central theme of the problem of asymmetrical modernization in the country's history as it fully explores the complicated path of Germany's troubled past and stable present.
