The Divided Nation

A History of Germany, 1918-1990

Mary Fulbrook

Covering all major aspects of German history from the Weimar Republic through reunification, this new textbook offers a remarkably rich, insightful survey of a difficult and controversial subject. It integrates East German history more fully than competing texts, offering a precisely nuanced picture of life in the GDR and a compelling account of the roots of the 1989 revolution, and incorporates the latest research in social and economic history to deepen and vivify the political narrative. A unique advantage is its full, and fully accessible, examination of current historiographical debates in the field. Comprehensive, cogent, and judiciously balanced, The Divided Nation will become a standard text for undergraduate and graduate courses.
