The Germans : rich, bothered and divided

Author: David Marsh
Publisher: London : Century, 1989.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book tells the story of a nation split into two struggling to come to terms with its past, present and future. The paradox is that the Federal Republic has made an astonishing recovery from the rubble of war to build up one of the world's strongest economies, yet in political terms it remains hopelessly weakened by the legacy of Hitler. It is a paradox that creates dangerous tensions.
