The Dividing Rhine: Politics And Society In Contemporary France And Germany

Edited by John Trumpbour
Berg, 1989

The first volume of a projected series to focus on trans-European intellectual issues, as opposed to those that are purely national. The volume is a mélange, ranging from indifferent essays about France and the memory of Munich to two perceptive pieces on the German Democratic Republic, written before the East European revolutions but nonetheless useful for understanding a system that collapsed so suddenly. Two splendid pieces by Robert Darnton and Simon Schama on Foucaultist faddishness in present-day historical writing round out this uneven and disconnected collection of essays.
