Different Germans, Many Germanies : New Transatlantic Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Konrad H. Jarausch, Harald Wenzel, Karin Goihl
As much as any other nation, Germany has long been understood in terms of totalizing narratives.
For Anglo-American observers in particular, the legacies of two world wars still powerfully define twentieth-century German history, whether through the lens of Nazi-era militarism and racial hatred or the nation's emergence as a "model" postwar industrial democracy.
This volume collects insightful studies from leading scholars that suggest new ways for understanding Germany from a transatlantic perspective.
From American perceptions of the Kaiserreich to the challenges posed by a multicultural Europe, it argues for-and exemplifies-an approach to German Studies that is nuanced, self-reflective, and holistic.
