Around 1900, Germany was economically the strongest country on the European continent, a leader in the sciences, with a flourishing culture and a progressive social model. One hundred years later, it is presented as being so once again. But, in between, there were two world wars, a failed democracy, the Nazi dictatorship and the Holocaust, and the 40-year division of the country. ow did Germany go from the economic and cultural bloom of the country around the turn of the century to mass crimes during the Nazi dictatorship? And how did the Germans emerge from this apocalypse over the next sixty years? Ulrich Herbert tackles here the questions of both the collapse in the first half of the century and the development from a post-fascist, ruined society to one of the most stable liberal democracies and one of the richest countries in the world in the latter half.To explain these trajectories, Herbert's analysis brings together wars and terror, utopia and politics, capitalism and the welfare state, socialism and liberal democratic society, gender and generations, culture and lifestyles, European integration and globalization.
