Ulrich Herbert is the chair for Modern History at the University of Freiburg and former Director of the School of History at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies. He was awarded the Leibniz Prize of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in 1999 and has published numerous works on German and European history in the 20th century. He is the editor of the ten-volume book series European History in the 20th Century and the twenty-four volume Modern Times series.
This book is an incredible resource for modern historians in all fields for their research due to Herbert's' extensive research on all countries and their relationship with Germany in the 20th century. By synthesizing such a wide range of sources, including a 50-page bibliography for other researchers to use, and drawing connections between seemingly random events, Herbert's book provides a nearly complete telling of twentieth century German history. * Kyra Dezjot, Kean University, New England Journal of History *
