This book represents a much-needed reappraisal of Germany between the wars, examining the political, social and economic aims of the new republic, their failure and how they led to Nazism and eventually the Second World War. The author includes:
* an examination of the legacy of the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles
* discussion of the early years of crisis culminating in the Ruhr Invasion and the Dawes Settlement
* assessment of the leadership of Stresemann and Bruning

* an outline of the historiography of the Weimar Republic.
