“[Steininger’s} work is an original and much needed entrée into a topic that is bound to elicit scholarly interest in the near future.” • The Centre for Mediterranean, Middle East & Islamic Studies


For over a century, the Middle East has weathered seemingly endless conflicts, ensnaring political players from around the world. And perhaps no nation has displayed a greater range of policies toward, and experiences in, the region than Germany, as this short and accessible volume demonstrates. Beginning with Kaiser Wilhelm’s intermittent support for Zionism, it follows the course of German-Mideast relations through two world wars and the rise of Adolf Hitler. As Steininger shows, the crimes of the Third Reich have inevitably shaped postwar German Mideast policy, with Germany emerging as one of Israel’s staunchest supporters while continuing to navigate the region’s complex international, religious, and energy politics.

Rolf Steininger teaches history at the University of Innsbruck. His recent books include Die USA und Europa nach 1945 in 38 Kapiteln (2018) and Der Kalte Krieg: Die neue Geschichte (2016).
