This book presents a general survey of the political, social, economic, intellectual, and cultural history of Germany, from national unification in 1871 to political division in 1945 and reunification in the present. Within a roughly chronological presentation, this book interprets modern German history and discusses the attempts by the German elite to cope with the countrys asymmetric modernization and the effects of those attempts on Europe and the world. The book focuses on the dynamics in German society that led to the volatility and unpredictability in the countrys domestic policies and foreign relations as well as to its impressive achievements while emphasizing Germanys failure to find a societal, political or economic consensus allowing growth and stability. Explores the long-standing traditions of political, cultural, and economic liberalism, as well as left-wing radicalism that existed side-by-side with Prusso-German authoritarianism, the Nazi dictatorship, military aggression, and the Holocaust. Covers controversial topics such as the Nazi era and the countrys post-war division. The fourth edition of A History of Modern Germany has been revised to include the latest events in Germany right up to 1997 focusing on political, economic, and social developments as well as foreign policy and the problems and prospects of the New Germany. It also includes a revised chapter on the dramatic events since 1989, specifically the period 1990-1994. An essential resource for anyone interested in the history and future of modern Germany, Europe, and the world.
