The search for normality : national identity and historical consciousness in Germany since 1800

Author: Stefan Berger
Publisher: Providence : Berghahn Books, 1997.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The Historikerstreit of the 1980s has ended inconclusively amidst heated debates on the nature and course of German national history. The author follows the debates beyond the unexpected reunification of the country in 1989/90 and analyses the most recent trends in German historiography. Reunification, he observes, has brought in its wake efforts on the extreme Right to re-establish a nationalist historiography.
