'A well-researched and concise presentation of the fourteen years' experience of this state ... a first-class study aid.' Heinz Abosch, Suddeutsche Zeitung 'There is no better introduction to the historical complexities of the first German republic for teachers, students or laymen.' Heinrich August Winkler, Historische Zeitschrift The Weimar Republic, Germany's first attempt at a democracy, lasted from 1918 until the accession to power of Hitler. The Weimar Republic provides both a clear historical narrative of this critical period in German history and a detailed analysis of the scholarly research in the field. In the first part of the book, Eberhard Kolb surveys the political, social, economic and cultural developments of the Weimar Republic, setting it within the international context of the inter-war period. Kolb then goes on to provides a detailed examination of the historiography of the period, shedding light on the problems and controversies of both domestic and foreign affairs inthis period. This new English edition, which has been translated from the sixth and most recent German edition, has been brought up to date throughout to take account of all the latest research in the subject. It also includes a completely revised and updated Bibliography. With its detailed Chronology and extensive Bibliography, The Weimar Republic provides an invaluable introduction for all students of this immensely important period in Germany history.
