Imperial Germany revisited; continuing debates and new perspectives.

Ed. by Sven Oliver Muller and Cornelius Torp.

Berghahn Books


348 pages




Muller (research group leader at Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin) and Torp (history, Martin Luther U.) collect here 21 essays from 21 academic contributors offering different perspectives on and debates about Germany's tumultuous entry into the modern era. Since the 1960s historians have vigorously debated how the culture and politics of Imperial Germany affected Germany's role in World War I and II. This book spotlights those ongoing debates and explores many different perspectives on Germany's emergence as a modern nation. The book is divided into four parts titled: The Place of Imperial Germany in German History; Politics, Culture, and Society; War and Violence; and The German Empire and the World.
