Reviews

“This volume, a festschrift for Richard J. Evans in honor of his retirement as Regius Professor of History at the University of Cambridge, is a collection of essays on German history written by his former doctoral students. … It provides a superb snapshot of current trends in German historical research, and can be recommended to any historians of science whose interests touch on the German-speaking world.” (Ryan Dahn, H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online, networks.h-net.org, March, 2017)
