Rezensionen
"Kitchen's History of Modern Germany provides a comprehensive and lively account of key developments in German history from the early nineteenth century to the post-unification period. Ranging from diplomatic and political history to women's history, sexuality, Jews, food, drink and fashion, and changing patterns of social stratification, Kitchen's second edition, with newly written sections on Nazism and the GDR, incorporates the very latest historical research while remaining readable and accessible to a wide audience." --Stuart Taberner, University of Leeds "Whoever looks for a classic political history of modern Germany, is best served with Martin Kitchen's most reliable, well organized and up-to-date account." --Thomas Kühne, Clark University "Martin Kitchen has provided a lucid and scholarly narrative focused on Germany's emergence as a national state from its fragmented condition in the early 19th century and post-1945 decades. Along the way, he has interwoven the necessary political, economic, social, and cultural trends that are useful in providing a comprehensive account of the complexities that mark this history up to Angela Merkel. He has also effectively used statistics and vivid portraits of the actors to offer a living history." --Donald Dietrich, Boston College
"Overall, Kitchen offers a well-written and useful text for anyone studying or interested in modern Germany history." (Times Higher Education Supplement, 23 February 2012)
