About the Book

This book represents a much-needed reappraisal of Germany between the wars, examining the political, social and economic aims of the new republic, their failure and how they led to Nazism and eventually the Second World War. The author includes:

* an examination of the legacy of the First World War and the Treaty of Versailles

* discussion of the early years of crisis culminating in the Ruhr Invasion and the Dawes Settlement

* assessment of the leadership of Stresemann and Bruning

* exploration of the circumstances leading to the rise of Hitler

* an outline of the historiography of the Weimar Republic.


'A concise and clear account of Germanys first democracy … It … includes helpful details about critical issues … in an accessible way and will be helpful for students.' - German History
