The book itself was written by an Oxford University professor, hence it is a boring read. Too many unnecessary big vocabulary words that my generation can do without. The facts and details of what went on in Germany politically during this time is very detailed. But his coverage and analysis are first-rate. He covers foreign and domestic policy, as you'd expect, but also the culture of Germany before and after the Great War (tho with an understandable leaning to political implications).

This is the history of the rise and fall of united Germany, which lasted only 75 years from its establishment by Bismark in 1870. Ending in the rubble of Hitler's regime, It is a history of greed, fear, cruelty, and the corruption of power on one hand; of courage, struggle for liberty, and resistance to tyranny on the other. Gordon Craig not only analyses the political structures of and the foreign, social, and economic policies of successive governments, but also examines the individuals who dominated the period and the important intellectual and cultural influences at work. His fascinating chapter on the rich diversity of Weimar culture - Mann and Hesse, Marlene Deitrich and film, Brecht, Schonberg, Expressionist art, and the growth of psychoanalytic theory - is proof enough that this is not an ordinary historybook. It is rather a full and vivid re-creation of a period of history which, as he says, demands the attention of reflective men'.

This book has it all. An excellent coverage of arguably the most important era of German history written in a lucid and very readable style. One thing: I bought this book used and, if you're like me, it is full of highlighted sections that nauseate. There is a special circle of hell for those who apply a highlighter to a good book. That's assuming Old Scratch could even accept such a depraved creature into Hell.
  • Nikojas
This is one of the most masterful works on German political history as social process. The breadth of understanding of the subject is masterful.
  • Jek
Well laid out German history explains a lot of things that happened and became causes of what took place later. Not often covered in this detail in US.
  • Kulalbine
This is an excellent history of Germany. It's a wealth of knowledge and will help one understand the beginnings of both World Wars. I love the section on Bismarck.
  • Braendo
The seller sent this book fast and in good condition. The book itself was written by an Oxford University professor, hence it is a boring read. Too many unnecessary big vocabulary words that my generation can do without. The facts and details of what went on in Germany politically during this time is very detailed. If you are interested in the why and how Germany started two of the worst wars in world history this book certain explains how this occurred . This book is imformative but I don't reccomend it for a casual reader who wants a general overview of what happened rather than all the boring details.

Well, clearly, DMP is representative, in his review, of his generation and suffers from not only a goldfish's attention span, but also a lack of appreciation for this work. Or probably the utility of history in general. Reload the floor-standing bong, bro....Gordon Craig had an office at Stanford, I know, I saw it in 1990 when I visited the campus, considering graduate work. I own this book, and used it as part of the immortal Robt. Pois's class on Modern German History at the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1988. This work is the plinth on which Pois built his epic lectures on the unification of Germany, Bismarckianism, the failure of the Weimar Republic and the rise of National Socialism. That's right, history-ignorers, the Nazis were Socialists. It is larded with pithy diplomatic truisms: "Initiative without tact is like a flood without dikes." Freidrich von Holstein (1895) These truisms resonate today in global diplomacy. And when it goes south, you wind up with people like Kim Jong Un. So, as Walter White would say, "There's that." Buy this book, read it, and absorb its lessons for humanity. I leave you with Konrad Adenauer's admonition: "A Prussian is a Slav who has forgotten who his grandfather was."

Craig assumes basic literacy in the overall history of Europe in the period he covers; this is not a good First Book of Modern Germany. But his coverage and analysis are first-rate. He covers foreign and domestic policy, as you'd expect, but also the culture of Germany before and after the Great War (tho with an understandable leaning to political implications).
Craig sees a continuity in German ends, if not means, from Bismarck through to Hitler, and is withering in his criticisms of the German passion for "pounding the table" as a substitute for politics or, indeed, thought. His book doesn't completely explain the mystery of how the Germans could follow Hitler, but it made that clearer for me than it was before I read it. As we might expect of a professor, his analysis of German academic culture & its subservience to authority is especially good.
It provides a well organised overview of the period, though it "jumbs" to different eventsand people without keepinga coherent flow.
