This concluding volume of a three-volume reassessment of the last five centuries of German history develops the theme of power into what Gordon A. Craig calls a "masterly account of the dramatic, tragic and often shameful history of Germany in the most recent age" (New York Times Book Review). It deals with the period of nationalism and imperialism, from the abortive attempt of popular forces to found a liberal national state and Bismarck's German unification through the Prussian military monarchy to the expansionist programs of the age of William II and Hitler's world conquest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
At a time when most historians are devoting their energies primarily to small segments of our past, it is heartening to have a person of Professor Holborn's stature present us with his interpretation of the sweep of history and of a country whose impact on many phases of Western civilization has been highly significant.---H. J. Grimm, American Historical Review
Dr. Holborn is to be congratulated for his emphasis on the socioeconomic factors in German history. This is the first major work in English on the subject in which adequate attention is given to various facets of German historical development and particularly to economic factors.---L.L. Snyder, Annals of the American Academy
The work is persuasive because it evinces the author's first-hand knowledge of the country and its culture. . . . Wisdom, serenity, and compassion as well as great historical intelligence and perspicacity have molded it.---Fritz Stern, The Yale Review
