Written from the perspective of post-reunification Germany, A History of Modern Germany allows readers to take a long view of German history and to trace continuities as well as changes. It examines cultural issues such as class, religion, and gender, as well as political and economic history, and includes coverage of regional history rather than merely focusing on the dominant role of Prussia."--Jacket." ;
