“Michael Meng and Adam Seipp’s ambitious edited volume brings together an almost excessive variety of fascinating essays…This this wonderful but unconventional volume… is an impressive and worthwhile read, both for its exciting component parts that tackle different issues and for its overarching grappling with modern German history.” • Central European History
“The studies in this volume are a testament to the depth and breadth of Konrad Jarausch’s contributions to the field. Their quality and diversity provide an excellent window into the field of contemporary German and European history, as well as the history of the Holocaust, over the past three or four decades.” • Eric Kurlander, Stetson University
Bringing together incisive contributions from an international group of colleagues and former students, Modern Germany in Transatlantic Perspective takes stock of the field of German history as exemplified by the extraordinary scholarly career of Konrad H. Jarausch. Through fascinating reflections on the discipline’s theoretical, professional, and methodological dimensions, it explores Jarausch’s monumental work as a teacher and a builder of scholarly institutions. In this way, it provides not merely a look back at the last fifty years of German history, but a path forward as new ideas and methods infuse the study of Germany’s past.
