5.0 out of 5 stars The tragedy of German democracy 29 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
An immensely interesting, intelligent study of the failure of Weimar democracy, the Limits of Reason deftly captures the tragic nature of the period. With all the naivete of Don Quixote tilting at windmills, much of the German democratic press placed an inordinate faith in the power of free speech to make Germany a more open and just society. Unfortunately, as the author ably argues, most miscalculated the impact that so much economic and political disorientation would have on the country's fledgling democratic institutions. This book deserves a wide readership.
