Using a clearly structured approach and accessible language, the contributors explain the electoral and political systems and underline the significance of the Federal system in Germany. They discuss problems in the education system and social provision and also chronicles recent changes in the German economy and industry. "Modern Germany" also describes the media landscape of the nation and the recent reforms to the German language.
"The entries provide a level of accuracy that is uncommon in general reference works, making reliability the greatest strength of this work.....When one considers the eminent scholars who contributed to the volume, the reliability becomes less of a pleasant surprise, and more of an expectation."
-Canadian Journal, August 2000
