Excellent collection for newbies -- a much more enjoyable method for absorbing new vocabulary than lists of words. The material is somewhat old (first published in the 50s) but it's interesting to read about then-current notions of national identity and the political situation. Also includes a large number of brief readings by great German authors from Schiller to Goethe to Nietzsche to Brecht.
