| Book Description: |
Challenging those who seek continuity in German history primarily in terms of its long march toward Nazism, this book searches for the indigenous origins of postwar German democracy. By exploring the links between earlier abortive Catholic initiatives and the range of competing postwar visions of the new party system, this book moves Catholic Germany from the periphery to the heart of the issue of continuity in modern German history.
