Reading Seminar on German Politics, Culture and Society, 1918-1949
centres on the problems of Germany in the period between the end of the
First World War and the early phases of the Cold War in Europe. It
examines the reasons why so many `ordinary' Germans saw the Nazi Party
as a `reasonable' political option,
how the Nazis fundamentally changed the lives of the German people, and
how the defeat of Nazi Germany led to the Allied 'reconstruction' that
reshaped "Two Germanies."
