A Concise History of Germany, Paperback Book


This book provides a clear and informative guide to the twists and turns of German history from the early middle ages to the present day.

The multi-faceted, problematic history of the German lands has provided a wide range of debates and differences of interpretation.

Mary Fulbrook provides a crisp synthesis of a vast array of historical material, and explores the interrelationships between social, political and cultural factors in the light of scholarly controversies.

First published in 1990, A Concise History of Germany appeared in an updated edition in 1992, and in a second edition in 2004.

It is the only single-volume history of Germany in English which offers a broad, general coverage.

It has become standard reading for all students of German, European studies and history, and is a useful guide to general readers, members of the business community and travellers to Germany.
