This book aims to give a comprehensive overview and interpretation of the development of Germany in the twentieth century, a country whose history has decisively shaped the map and the politics of modern Europe and the world in which we live. Professor Berghahn is not concerned merely with politics and diplomacy, but also with social change, economic performance and industrial relations. His appendix contains fifty tables of invaluable statistical information including industrial and agricultural production, employment, voting patterns and education.
