  • Alles Mythos! 20 populäre Irrtümer über die Germanenby Thomas Brock

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2014; US$ 15.77

    Rein und unvermischt, Urväter deutscher Nation und von überlegener Rasse - die Nationalsozialisten wollten mit den Germanen eine Jahrtausende alte, rassische Überlegenheit der ?Deutschen? konstruieren. Auch wir, die es heute besser wissen, stellen uns die Germanen oft recht einseitig vor. Raubeinige Horden, unbarmherzige Krieger und gefürchtete Gegner... more...

  • Alles Mythos! 20 populäre Irrtümer über Preußenby Astrid von Schlachta

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2014; US$ 15.77

    Preußen: expansiv, militaristisch und rücksichtslos - oder sparsam und tugendhaft, bürokratisch und ordnungsliebend? Waren es ?preußische Tugenden?, die dem Nationalsozialismus den Weg bereiteten? Hat Preußen Österreich aus dem Alten Reich gedrängt und war Berlin wirklich die verspätete Hauptstadt? Schon der Blick der Zeitgenossen auf Preußen war klischeebehaftet.... more...

    This is the first comprehensive study of the turbulent relationship among state, society, and church in the making of the modern German welfare system during the Weimar Republic.

  • Intimacy and Exclusionby Dagmar Herzog

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 33.00

    During the years leading up to the revolutions of 1848, liberal and conservative Germans engaged in a contest over the terms of the Enlightenment legacy and the meaning of Christianity--a contest that grew most intense in the Grand Duchy of Baden, where liberalism first became an influential political movement. Bringing insights drawn from Jewish... more...

  • Paths of Emancipationby Pierre Birnbaum; Ira Katznelson

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 39.95

    Throughout the nineteenth century, legal barriers to Jewish citizenship were lifted in Europe, enabling organized Jewish communities and individuals to alter radically their relationships with the institutions of the Christian West. In this volume, one of the first to offer a comparative overview of the entry of Jews into state and society, eight... more...

  • German Nationalism and Religious Conflictby Helmut Walser Smith

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.95

    The German Empire of 1871, although unified politically, remained deeply divided along religious lines.

  • Duelingby Kevin McAleer

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    The question of what it takes "to be a man" comes under scrutiny in this sharp, often playful, cultural critique of the German duel--the deadliest type of one-on-one combat in fin-de-siécle Europe. At a time when dueling was generally restricted to swords or had been abolished altogether in other nations, the custom of fighting to the death with pistols... more...

  • The Legacy of Roman Law in the German Romantic Eraby James Q. Whitman

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    Well after the process of codification had begun elsewhere in nineteenth-century Europe, ancient Roman law remained in use in Germany, expounded by brilliant scholars and applied in both urban and rural courts. The survival of this flourishing Roman legal culture into the industrial era is a familiar fact, but until now little effort has been made... more...
