Editorial Reviews


"[A] masterly account of the dramatic, tragic and often shameful history of Germany in the most recent age, which will probably become one of the most widely read of Holborn's works."--The New York Times Book Review

"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

About the Author

Hajo Holborn was Sterling Professor of History at Yale University.

Verified Purchase
It is a very detailed book of Germany but perhaps a little too detailed for my needs. However it is a very in depth study.
