about this item

In 1900, Germany was Europe's preeminent power and poised to achieve greatness--its material strength and strident militaristic ethos apparently balanced by a vital culture and extraordinary scientific achievement. InEinstein's German World, Fritz Stern explores the ambiguous promise of Germany before ******, its horrifying decline under ****** rule, and its remarkable recovery since World War II. Stern gracefully blends history and biography in a sequence of studies of Germany's great scientists and of German-Jewish relations before and during ******'s regime. Provocative and detailed,Einstein's German World illuminates the issues that have made the country, and Europe, so important in a tumultuous century of creativity and violence, as well as the challenges and prospects facing Germany today.
