Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly praised collection of essays by eminent historian Fritz Stern ponders the monumental promise and catastrophe of twentieth-century German history.

Review:

"The author of Gold and Iron, a much esteemed book on the formation of the German Empire, has gathered together here ten lectures and papers written over the last decade. Beautifully distilled and spacious, these studies offer much insight into the aspirations and failures of modern Germany. The origins of anti-Semitism in Germany are discussed here, as is Hitler's astonishing rise to power, which (the author explains) depended in part on the dictator's cunning use of the language of religion—of national salvation and redemption. While objective and fair-minded, this study is also highly personal. It touches repeatedly on the struggle in contemporary Germany to come to terms with its horrifying recent past." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
