Publisher Comments:

Even a brief glance at the maps of what has, or might have, been called Germany through the ages reveals a kaleidoscope of alterations in shape and composition. Though there are elements of continuity, the history of Germany has been filled with nearly constant change. In this concise introduction to Germany's fascinating past, Peter Wende provides an approachable historical interpretation of the key periods and turning points from Roman times to the present. Focusing on key points in Germany's political, social and economic development, this guide is ideal for all those with an interest in this complex and compelling history.

About the Author

Peter Wende was formerly Professor of History at Frankfurt University and Director of the German Historical Institute in London. He is now retired and lives in Frankfurt.
