With more than 1,100 entries written by an international group of over 150 contributors, the Encyclopedia of Contemporary German Culture brings together myriad strands of social, political and cultural life in the post-1945 German-speaking world.
With a unique structure and format, an inclusive treatment of the concept of culture, and coverage of East, West and post-unification Germany, as well as Austria and Switzerland, the Encyclopedia of Contemporary German Culture is the first reference work of its kind.
Containing longer overviews of up to 2,000 words, as well as shorter factual entries, cross-referencing to other relevant articles, useful further reading suggestions and extensive indexing, this highly useable volume provides the scholar, teacher, student or non-specialist with an astonishing breadth and depth of information.

John Sandford is Professor of German Studies at the University of Reading, UK.From Library Journal:
This user-friendly encyclopedia on German culture is part of Routledges Encyclopedias of Contemporary Culture series (following Encyclopedia of Contemporary French Culture, LJ 10/1/98). Resourceful and well balanced, it was compiled by some 159 scholars, who contributed more than 1000 informative and impartial entries. Contemporary is defined as postWorld War II, and culture pertains to topics ranging from history, economy, and politics to art, literature, religion, sports, and more. German relates not only to Germany but to all German-speaking countries and to influential individuals who have helped define or re-define German culture and thought. Consequently, the book includes entries on writers like Ingeborg Bachman, Elias Canetti, and Max Frisch, cultural theorist Georg Lukcs, and even actor Arnold Schwartzenegger. This accessible reference source will appeal to both the lay reader with no knowledge of German language or culture and the scholar who demands extensive research tools. Moreover, it provides helpful links to further reading with copious cross references. It deserves a place on the shelves of all public and academic libraries.Mirela Roncevic, Library Journal
