Review: The Origins of Modern Germany

User Review  - Ellis L. - Goodreads

Standard book, still in print. Especially for the late Middle Ages, it needs significant revision. Read only in conjunction with more recent scholarship. It's still in print because he's so damned readable. Read full review

Review: The Origins of Modern Germany

User Review  - Giff Zimmerman - Goodreads

Very scholarly. Started strong. The middle 300 pages were fact-laden and dry, and a difficlt read. However, the last 100 pages or so, covering the 300 years after 1648, focused far more on analysis and less on facts, and was very insightful and informative. Read full review
