As crises unfold, the narratives chronicled by journalists, economists, and historians produce stories that serve not only to recount events, but also to prescribe preventative measures. Combining multiple narratives of economic crisis in Germany over the past 200 years, Invested Narratives situates interdisciplinary examinations of how German society grappled with establishing structures and strategies for state involvement in the industrial and commercial markets. This volume allows for a widened understanding of German economic debates and their influence on German society and the European Union while critically engaging both early and more recent theoretical, empirical, and analytical approaches to economic crisis and Ordnung narratives generated from sources such as the German government, the financial sector and fictional representations.

Jill E. Twark is Associate Professor of German at East Carolina University. Her research focuses on contemporary German literature and culture. Along with her monograph, Humor, Satire, and Identity: Eastern German Literature in the 1990s (De Gruyter 2012), she has edited books on post-unification German humor and social-justice dilemmas.
