Book Description

May 28, 1996 0313276412 978-0313276415

The German Empire has been the focus of enormous historical interest, particularly during the last thirty years, when its relationship to the Third Reich became an acute historical and civic problem. This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the rich historical literature on the subject. In topical chapters, a group of leading scholars from six different countries, who have themselves participated in crafting the historiography of Imperial Germany, address the principal interpretive issues that have informed this literature. The volume provides a central reference for students of modern German and European history.

The chapters present historiographical surveys, which integrate original analyses and extended bibliographies. The topics covered include historical geography, agriculture, technology and industrial growth, demographic and social change, regionalism and particularism, confessionalism, state and society, education, political mobilization, the socialist labor movement, the academic disciplines and social thought, literature and the arts, foreign policy, colonialism and colonial empire, the armed forces and military planning, and Imperial Germany during World War I. The volume provides a central reference for students of modern German and European history.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"This collection of 18 English-language contributions by specialists of the Kaiserreich, the German Empire from 1871 to 1918, is well suited to readers of many levels, from undergraduates to professional scholars....[T]he study is highly recommended for all levels. The authors succeed an synthesizing Imperial Germany. It is clear why that nation-state provided much of the ideological fodder for Weimar Germany and the Third Reich, and why its historical context still resonates today."-Choice
