World-renowned historian Stern brings to life the five Germanys he has experienced: Weimar, the Third Reich, postwar West and East Germanys, and the unified country after 1990. He shows that the tumultuous history of Germany--alternately the strength and the scourge of Europe--offers political lessons for citizens everywhere.
