  • From Craftsmen to Capitalistsby Frederick L. McKitrick

    Berghahn Books 2016; US$ 34.95

    Politically adrift, alienated from Weimar society, and fearful of competition from industrial elites and the working class alike, the independent artisans of interwar Germany were a particularly receptive audience for National Socialist ideology. As Hitler consolidated power, they emerged as an important Nazi constituency, drawn by the party's rejection... more...

  • Re-Imagining DEFAby Sťan Allan; Sebastian Heiduschke

    Berghahn Books 2016; US$ 34.95

    By the time the Berlin Wall collapsed, the cinema of the German Democratic Republic-to the extent it was considered at all-was widely regarded as a footnote to European film history, with little of enduring value. Since then, interest in East German cinema has exploded, inspiring innumerable festivals, books, and exhibits on the GDR's rich and varied... more...

  • Bayernby Uli Hesse

    Random House 2016; US$ 21.14

    Bayern Munich is a team of extremes. They are the most passionately supported club in Germany and the most hated. There is no doubt that they are the most successful.
