Abstract:

"The Cambridge Illustrated History of Germany provides what has not been available before: an accessible, single-volume account of German history from earliest times to today, presented both chronologically and thematically. The book succeeds in putting into perspective Germany's complex past without shirking the issues it raises." "When did German history begin? Who is a German? How was it possible for such an advanced and civilized state to have been responsible for National Socialism and ultimately the mass extermination of the European Jews? Why has Germany always had such immense difficulty formulating a positive self-image? By giving us a detailed understanding of the complexity of the German past, Martin Kitchen sheds light on these paradoxes. In so doing, he clearly demonstrates how vital a democratic and prosperous Germany is to the future of all Europeans." "The book combines lively text with detailed maps; over 200 superb illustrations; and feature boxes on important people, places, events and issues. It is an illuminating and immensely valuable account for all those interested in Germany's history, and the importance of its role in building a post-nationalist Europe."--Jacket.
