Description

Covering all major aspects of German history from the Weimar Republic through reunification, this new book offers a remarkably rich, insightful survey of a difficult and controversial subject. It integrates East German history more fully than any previous account, offering a precisely nuanced picture of life in the GDR and a compelling account of the roots of the 1989 revolution, and incorporates the latest research in social and economic history to deepen and vivify the political narrative. A unique advantage is its full, and fully accessible, examination of current historiographical debates in the field. Comprehensive, cogent, and judiciously balanced, The Divided Nation will become the standard reference on this important subject.show more
