New Books in German History and German Studies (August 2020)

Editor's note: At the beginning of the month, as a service to our members, H-German publishes a list of newly released books on German History and German Studies that members have submitted to H-German.  If you would like to announce the publication of your new book, please submit the following information to Chris Fojtik: the author's name, the title of the book, the press, the month it appeared in print, and a link to the publisher/book's site (optional).

​If you would like your book to be reviewed by H-German, please ask your publisher to send a copy to H-Net.  The link for your publisher is http://www.h-net.org/help/reviews.php#publishers. Although there are no guarantees that that the book will be reviewed, we are always looking for new material to bring to our readers.

Thank you very much,

 

- The H-German Team
