9780521794329: The Cambridge Illustrated History of Germany (Cambridge Illustrated Histories)

The Cambridge Illustrated History of Germany presents a richly illustrated, integrated, chronological account of German history from Charlemagne to the modern era. Written in a lively, accessible manner for a general audience by a leading academic expert, this book is unique in its authority, approach and scope. Martin Kitchen focuses particularly on the German people - their culture and society. In this way he illuminates and puts into perspective the country's political history, from its origins as a collection of small, German-speaking states to its present-day status as a major European and world power. In special illustrated boxes and panels throughout the book, he reveals the great cultural and intellectual contribution Germans have made to the world through the works of figures such as Martin Luther, Bach, Kant, Wagner, and Gropius.

Book Description:

The Cambridge Illustrated History of Germany presents a richly illustrated, integrated, chronological account of German history from Charlemagne to the modern era. Unique in its approach and scope, the book focuses on German culture, illuminating and putting into perspective the country's varied political history.

From Booklist:

A splendidly written narrative, this glossy volume can attract the attention of new students and veteran scholars of the wild ups and downs of German history. Aided by a plethora of color images, Kitchen exerts his appeal by keeping before the reader the abiding questions of the country's identity: who is a German, and where is Germany? Answering these questions, Kitchen delivers an interpretive accounting of political structures from the Holy Roman Empire to the latest reunified state. Necessarily simplifying without being simplistic, the author touches the essentials that have shaped, and haunted, the country: Luther, the Reformation, the Thirty Years War, the ascendance of Prussia, the Napoleonic impact, and the disasters of the twentieth century. All is not goose-stepping and war, though. Kitchen encapsulates in illustrated sidebars the Germans' signal cultural achievements in music, painting, and literature, spanning such varied artists as Bach and Grosz. With such breadth combined with depth in the crucial periods, Kitchen offers libraries an excellent resource. Gilbert Taylor
