"A comprehensive history of German society in this period, providing a broad survey of its development. The volume is thematically organized and designed to give easy access to the major topics and issues of the Bismarkian and Wilhelmine eras. The statistical appendix contains a wide range of social, economic and political data. Written with the English-speaking student in mind, this book is likely to become a widely used text for this period, incorporating as it does twenty years of further research on the German Empire since the appearance of Hans-Ulrich Wehler's classic work."--

Knapp und anschaulich stellt dieser Band die Geschichte des Ersten Weltkriegs dar. Volker Berghahn erläutert darin auf dem neuesten Forschungsstand nicht nur die Militär- und Politikgeschichte des Krieges, sondern auch die Sozial- und Alltagsgeschichte an Front und Heimatfront. Nach einer Erläuterung der Ursprünge des Krieges und der Julikrise von 1914 folgt eine Analyse des Krieges aus der Perspektive der politischen, militärischen und wirtschaftlichen Eliten, bevor in einem weiteren Kapitel von "unten" die Erfahrungen von Millionen von Soldaten an allen Fronten sowie der in der Heimat zurückgebliebenen Frauen und Kinder geschildert werden. Das Buch endet mit einer Darstellung des Zusammenbruchs erst des russischen Zarenreichs 1917 und der beiden mitteleuropäischen Monarchien ein Jahr später
American big business in Britain and Germany : a comparative history of two "special relationships" in the 20th century by Volker R Berghahn( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While America's relationship with Britain has often been deemed unique, especially during the two world wars when Germany was a common enemy, the American business sector actually had a greater affinity with Germany for most of the twentieth century. This book examines the triangular relationship between the American, British, and German business communities and how the special relationship that Britain believed it had with the United States was supplanted by one between America and Germany. Volker Berghahn begins during the pre-1914 period and moves through the 1920s, when American investments supported German reconstruction rather than British industry. The Nazi seizure of power in 1933 led to a reversal in German-American relations, forcing American corporations to consider cutting their losses or collaborating with a regime that was inexorably moving toward war. Although Britain hoped that the wartime economic alliance with the United States would continue after World War II, the American business community reconnected with West Germany to rebuild Europe's economy. And while Britain thought they had established their special relationship with America once again in the 1980s and 90s, in actuality it was the Germans who, with American help, had acquired an informal economic empire on the European Continent. This book uncovers the surprising and differing relationships of the American business community with two major European trading partners from 1900 through the twentieth century
