|19TH CENTURY GERMANY :: 2001|
" In the late eighteenth century 'Germany' was a loose collection of states. These were shortly to be subject to devastating defeats and political reorganization at the hands of Napoleonic France. Less than a century later most of Germany was unified into one state and occupied a defeated France. Less than fifty years after that Germany was once again defeated and part of her territory occupied by France. "
" Accompanying these dramatic territorial and military transformations were equally radical and significant political, social, economic and cultural changes. Germany at the beginning of the period was largely an agrarian economy and rural society; by 1918 industrial production and urban life dominated. Universal schooling and literacy had been achieved; mass politics had displaced the intrigues of courts; Germany's innovative contributions to music, painting, literature, science, technology, the art of warfare and much else were second to none. A republic was proclaimed at the end of 1918, bringing an end to a long history of monarchical rule in Germany. "
" It is extraordinarily difficult for any single historian to do justice to changes so varied, complex and controversial. Instead, in this book an international team of scholars, experts in their fields, have collaborated to produce an innovative work that blends the basic guidance of a conventional textbook with analysis of central issues in political, social, economic and cultural history.
