Media Reviews
'Berghahn's thoughtful and authoritative analytical account of German history from Kaiser Wilhelm II to Willy Brandt makes a wonderful introduction to the subject. This is a text which every student of German civilisation should read.' The Virginia Quarterly Review
'Modern Germany delivers just about everything one should look for in a concise general text.' History
...it is refreshing to read a work that continues the strands of Germany's development up to the present, concluding even with some observations on the political forces led by such leaders as Franz Josef Strauss...Throughout his text, the author carefully uses the most reliable research available to diagnose a Germany that is more than a mere political entity. History of European Ideas
...well-informed and readable survey of twentieth century Germany...Using a historical structural analysis, Berghahn offers a reasonably well balanced treatment of economic performance, society, domestic and foreign policy. German Studies Review
