Book Description:

This book fills an important gap by providing a broad survey of modern German history from 1800-2000, thus setting Germany's fragmented history within its full context. Organised chronologically, the book deals with all the major watersheds in German history, including the unification, the rise and fall of the German Empire, the emergence of the Weimar Republic, and its submergence by the Third Reich, the collapse of the Third Reich with the Second World War, the birth of the Federal Republic, the collapse of Communism and re-unification. Written from the perspective of post-reunification Germany, the book allows readers to take a long view of German history and so to trace continuities as well as changes. Kitchen addresses cultural matters such as class, religion and gender, as well as political and economic history. He also pays attention to regional history, rather than focusing on the dominant role of Prussia. This book covers not only the experience of one of the major nations of the modern world but also its defining role in the wider history of Europe and the world.

From the Back Cover:

This engaging textbook provides a broad survey of modern German history from 1800-2000, and situates Germany’s fragmented past within its full context.

Organized chronologically, the book addresses all the major watersheds in German history, including the unification, the rise and fall of the German Empire, the emergence of the Weimar Republic and its eventual submergence by the Third Reich, the collapse of the Third Reich with the Second World War, the birth of the Federal Republic, the collapse of Communism, and re-unification. Written from the perspective of post-reunification Germany, A History of Modern Germany allows readers to take a long view of German history and to trace continuities as well as changes. It examines cultural issues such as class, religion, and gender, as well as political and economic history, and includes coverage of regional history rather than merely focusing on the dominant role of Prussia.
