The Weimar Republic - Detlev J.K. Peukert, Richard Deveson I found the first half, which was more synoptic, more interesting than the second half, which was more given to some specifics of social history -- but without being as intensely analytical as I would have hoped, or as detailed and thorough as would be required. Given all the superlatives I had heard about this book, I confess I was slightly disappointed. Perhaps I had too high an expectation.
