I do have a soft spot for the essay, and this book is a collection of the more daring in this vein. Each one of these is remarkably efficient in summarizing a paralyzing quantity of literature and history, and offers some interesting new approaches to German history. Not all are as original as intended, perhaps, but they all plead their respective cases nicely. I was particularly partial to the final section on the fusion of history and catastrophe, but then again, that's what I study.
