Description of this Book

In one volume, Hagen Schulze conveys the full sweep of German history, from the days of the Romans to the fall of the Berlin Wall. From the revolt of the indigenous tribes against the Roman domination, Schulze leads the reader through the events that have defined a nation at the centre of European culture: the 30 Years War and the decline of the Holy Roman Empire; Luther's Reformation; Bismarck's attendance at the birth of modern Germany; the Great War and its aftermath; the nationalistic megalomania under Hitler; the division of the nation after World War II; and its reunification. Throughout the reader sees waht these developments have meant for the German people, in the arena of private life and on the stage of world history.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Throughout this accessible survey of German history - which is punctuated by splendidly reproduced works of art - the author focuses on a key question: 'Who are the Germans?' His answer...sets this book apart from other general histories. - John E. Pluenneke, Business Week [Schulze] marches briskly through the centuries to produce a highly engaging, compact volume that shouldn't scare off general readers...He has produced a lucid primer that is a valuable addition to a field crowded with dense, specialized volumes. - Andrew Nagobski, Washington Post Book World
UK Review Schulze, who teaches in Berlin, has written a refreshingly clear outline of German history over 20 centuries, recounting old disputes and suggesting new ones. This is a valuable introduction for students of history, language and culture; not to speak of the history of history. The illustrations are excllent, though many need a magnifying glass. The book does not read like a translation and concludes on a positive note. (Kirkus UK)
