Germany, 1914-1933

In his new book Germany: Politics, Society and Culture 1914-1933, Matthew Stibbe argues that the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, not the Revolution of 1918/19, was the real starting point of the Weimar Republic:

Germany, 1914-1933 takes a fresh and critical look at this crucial period in German history. The book suggests that previous scholars have been wrong to focus on 1918 rather than 1914 as the starting point of Germany’s descent into chaos and dictatorship and in particular will show that 1914 was a significant turning point in terms of German attitudes towards nationalism and gender and the role of violence in political life.’
