    Pressing on to see if my initial evaluation is correct.

    It's set up as a series of essays which actually does service to german history because it isn't saddled with trying to weave a single narrative out of it.

    It's like a gateway drug for german history.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    A superb approach to a difficult topic, excellently written.

    Unlike many other histories of germany, macgregor's book does not devote disproportionate attention to the third reich and its antecedents.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Though quite informative, it is never dull and does not get mired in extraneous details.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Macgregor's approach is novel in that each chapter is like a short article on a particular topic.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Although the flow is chronological, the topics are not detailed expositions of, for example, the thirty years' war, but rather a series of tangential and interesting subplots which reveal in their accumulation a fascinating and thoughtful overview of, among other things, what it means to be german.
