Of all European nations, Germany is perhaps the hardest to understand. Its borders and political institutions have changed dramatically, and its history encompasses both the pinnacles of civilization and the depths of inhumanity. In this remarkable book from the author of A History of the World in 100 Objects, Neil MacGregor selects key objects, places and people that encapsulate some aspect of the nation, ranging from Charlemagne to currywurst, from Dürer to the Bauhaus, and from the ruins of Dresden to the gates of Buchenwald.
