New German Historical Perspectives
Series Editors: Paul Betts (Executive Editor), Timothy Garton Ash, Jürgen Kocka, Gerhard Ritter, Nicholas Stargardt and Margit Szöllösi-Janze
Originally established in 1987 as an English-language forum for the presentation of research by leading German historians and social scientists to readers in English-speaking countries, this series has since become one of the premier vehicles for the dissemination of German research expertise. Volumes in the series examine contemporary academic debates and issues of broad topical interest to Germans and non-Germans alike. Their coverage is not limited to Germany alone but extends to the history of other countries, as well as general problems of political, economic, social and intellectual history and international relations.
