The Germans - Rich, Bothered and Divided [1989. Signed by the Author]

£17.99

Product description

First edition, published in 1989 by Century.

Masterful in its scope and detail 'The Germans' tells the story of a nation split into two struggling to come to terms with its past, present and future. The paradox is that the Federal Republic has made an astonishing recovery from the rubble of war to build up one of the world's strongest economies, yet in political terms it remains hopelessly weakened by the legacy of Hitler. This is a paradox that creates dangerous tensions.
This is an account of economic decline and spiritual renaissance. After carrying out more than 200 interviews with Germans of all walks of life, David Marsh penetrates the veil surrounding a well-ordered but vulnerable society whose people remain curiously shorn of self-confidence and beset by anxiety.

With a signed dedication from the author on the title page addressed to Edward. The name E Mortimer is also written on the front end paper. Includes a two-page press release from the publisher.

In Very Good condition. Complete with unclipped dust jacket, the rear flap has been misfolded. Clean throughout with a firm binding.
