Book Review - Germany: A Nation in its Time

Germany: A Nation in its Time

Before, During, and After Nationalism, 1500-2000
By: Helmut Walser Smith

Book Review

This book took me an unusually long time to read due to a lot of things going on in my life. That did not diminish my appreciation for it though. Helmut Smith helped me understand things that I was not able to before. A couple examples would be the history of map-making as well as how the pre-German states relate to the formation of a unified German nation. I know this has been explained to me before, but Smith helped me finally understand it. I appreciated how he probed the fabric of German history and I loved his endnotes.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.
