It is the story of a country that, while always culturally identified with the West, long resisted the political trajectories of its neighbours.This first volume (of two) begins with the origins and consequences of the medieval myth of the Reich, which was to experience a fateful renaissance in the twentieth century, and ends with the collapse of the first German democracy. Winkler offers a brilliant synthesis of complex events and illuminates them with fresh insights. He analyses the decisions that shaped the countrys triumphs and catastrophes, interweaving high politics with telling vignettes about the German people and their ownself-perception.With a forthcoming second volume to take the story up to reunification in 1990, Germany: The Long Road West will be welcomed by scholars, students, and anyone wishing to understand this most complex and contradictory of countries..
