Luther had a front-row seat for World War I, the Revolution of 1918, the Great Inflation, the Great Depression, and the rise of the Third Reich, serving as Hitler's first Ambassador to the United States.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Lives of Hans Luther provides a significant contribution to the field of Weimar political and economic history. Its treatment of the financial issues during the 1920s and of the banking crisis in 1931 is particularly helpful. -- Raffael Scheck, Colby College
The author does his best to bring some drama into Luther's rather pedestrian life. He suggests that Luther and Gastav Stresemann were bitter rivals that Luther played a crucial and underrated role in negotiating the Treaties of Locarno. * The Journal Of Central European History *
