Germany came into being as a single state in 1871. Twice defeated in war, it has been destroyed as a nation-state and now again reunified. This book, by means of a series of essays spanning the late eighteenth century up to the events of 1989 - 90, probes the role of the national idea in this dramatic history. It will help all those interested in both the German past and the German present to understand the changing meanings of the national idea and its political significance. The distinguished contributors include James Sheehan, William Carr, Mary Fulbrook, Peter Alter and Wolf Gruner.
