A History of Modern Germany, Volume 3: 1840-1945 (Hardback)Hajo Holborn (author)
- Not available
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.

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
