Summary
"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 World War II, the birth of the Federal Republic, the collapse of Communism, and reunification. 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."--BOOK JACKET
