9780887383496: Russia and Germany: Century of Conflict

Despite changes in the international constellation since Russia and Germany initially appeared in 1965, the relationship between these two nations remains the most important single issue in European politics and East-West affairs. This study of what Russians and Germans have thought of each other and the fateful consequences of their interacting ideas is of lasting significance.The fact that Russia and Germany have embodied extreme manifestations of the totalitarian plague in the twentieth century. After briefly exploring the historical origins of Russophobia in Germany and of anti-Germanism in Russia, Laqueur reviews in detail the confrontation of Nazism and Bolshevism that culminated in World War II. He deals with the Russian origins of National Socialism and the ideology of the Russian far right from the days of the "Black Hundred" to its recent revival.This edition includes a major new introduction by the author, reviewing developments in the relationship between Russia and Germany in the last 25 years, and speculating about its future. Long out of print, Russia and Germany will be again welcomed by political scientists, students of international relations, and all those with an interest in recent history and current events.

About the Author:

Walter Laqueur was director of the Institute of Contemporary History in London and served as chairman of the International Research Council of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington until 2000. He was founder and editor of the Journal of Contemporary History and other publications. Laqueur taught at Georgetown, Harvard, the University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins, Brandeis University, and Tel Aviv University.

Review:

"Laqueur's study is the best we have of an extremely important segment of contemporary history."

—Klaus Epstein, Modern Age

"I have seen no better treatment in so short a space."

—Hugh Seton-Watson, The Spectator

"Brilliant...one of the five outstanding books of the year on international relations."

—Quincy Howe, New York Times

"Laqueur has produced an illuminating and fascinating account of a little-known area in Russian-German relations based on a wide range of published and unpublished materials. He writes with commendable detachment, yet with critical, sophisticated judgment, in a fresh, lucid style."

—American Historical Review
