"The State of Germany Atlas does provide pertinent comparative data as background reading for classes on German culture in general and other offerings on contemporary Germany... All in all, this book contains helpful statistical information to accompany more substantive textual analyses of present-day Germany in the European and global contexts." -- Germanic Notes and Reviews
