Obedient Germans?: A Rebuttal : a New View of German History
University Press of Virginia, 1997 - History - 126 pages
Obedient Germans? A Rebuttal is a concise book, brimming with smart ideas and important, little-known information. It lays to rest the notion that ordinary people passively let 'history' sweep over them, instead of actively creating their own history. It is also a powerful antidote to some of the most persistent stereotypes about German history. Anyone interested in the early modern era will want to read this book for its grand thematic sweep and interpretive rigor. It sets the standard for understanding the political role of the common people in European history.
