Summary
"A Traveller's History of Germany tells the story of Germany's evolution from a collection of tribal regions in Roman times to a modern nation-state that today is a mainstay of the European Union. It provides the traveller with historical fact and insight, and a clear understanding of the context through which German cultural and political traditions evolved over two millennia. The reader's enjoyment of this history will be enhanced by maps and line drawings, and a historical gazetteer cross-referenced with the text which illuminates the historical significance of many sites and events."--Jacket

Summary
This pocket (5x8") guide explores Germany's past, present, and future with the traveler in mind, providing more historical background than a typical tourist guide. Cole (European history, Utah State University) tells the story of Germany's evolution from a collection of tribal regions in Roman times to a modern nation-state. With a chronology, a historical gazetteer, and b&w maps and illustrations, the book will come in handy for students as well as travelers. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
