For undergraduate junior/senior level courses in German history.Covering the entire period of modern German history-from nineteenth century imperial Germany right through 2001-this well-established text engages students with its narrative, problem-focused approach, presenting a balanced, general survey of the country's political division in 1945 and reunification in the present. Detailing foreign policy as well as political, economic, and social developments, it presents a central theme of the problem of asymmetrical modernization in the country's history as it fully explores the complicated path of Germany's troubled past and stable present.
