Risen From Ruins: Germany's Political Revival, 1945-2020 (Hardback)Peter Conradi (author)
- Coming soon
Seventy-five years ago, the idea of Germany leading Europe was unthinkable.
Morally and economically bankrupt, the country lay in ruins. But even as it was divided into the communist East and capitalist West, Germany rebuilt its industry and an economic miracle occurred. When the wall between them fell, the country became a unique social democracy and an economic powerhouse.
Today, Germany may be the acknowledged leader of Europe, but it has its own problems to contend with. With the stalwart Angela Merkel set to step down and an emboldened ultra-right gaining ever more influence, the future remains unknown.
