Overview


"Tipton's book will prove a godsend to teachers and students of Modern German History; not only does it provide a fresh and compelling account of the whole period from 1815 right up to the present, it achieves a rare synthesis of social, political, economic and cultural history. You get the equivalent of about six (good) books for the price of one!!"—John Milfull, University of New South Wales

"A comprehensive, balanced, up-to-date, and fair synthesis that will be extremely valuable to undergraduate students…. The writing is superior and the approach is sound…. This study will challenge student readers to make the sorts of connections that are demanded of them in too few of the competing texts."—James Retallack, University of Toronto
