The Euro crisis has served as a stark reminder of the fundamental importanc e of Germany to the larger European project. But the image of Germany as th e dominant power in Europe is at odds with much of its recent history. Relu ctant Meister is a wide-ranging study of Germany from the Holy Roman Empire through the Second and Third Reichs, and it asks not only how such a matur e and developed culture could have descended into the barbarism of Nazism b ut how it then rebuilt itself within a generation to become an economic pow erhouse. Perhaps most important, Stephen Green examines to what extent Germ any will come to dominate its relationship with its neighbors in the Europe an Union, and what that will mean.
