This third edition of "A History of Germany" traces the dramatic social, cultural, and political tensions in Germany since 1918. This work: offers a persuasive interpretation of the dynamics of twentieth-century German history; treats German history from 1918-2008 from the perspective of division and reunification, covering East and West German history in equal depth; and, covers the self-destructive Weimar Republic, the extremes of genocide and military aggression in the Nazi era, the division of the nation in the Cold War, and the collapse of communist East Germany and unification in 1990. This new edition includes updates throughout, especially covering the Nazi period and the Holocaust; a new chapter on Germany since the 1990s; and, a substantially revised and updated bibliography.
