Succeeding their earlier, The Land and People of Austria, the latest collaboration of American author Wohlrabe and German author Krusch, concentrates on the geographical and occupational contrasts of Deutschland today, although the history, literature, language, and arts are respectfully covered as well. Serious and scholarly in tone, the vocabulary and complexity of subject matter mark this distinctly for high school age groups. Sixteen photographs illustrate the latest addition to the Portraits of the Nations Series. The history is integrated in studies of Prussia, Hesse, Baden Wuertemberg, Schleswig-Holstein, and Bavaria. From Martin Luther at Wittenberg in 1517 to the Eagle's Nest Berchtesgarten, from the smoking chimneys of the Ruhr through the somnolent harvest in Bavaria, the authors have projected an accurate guide to the contrasting areas that lie within the borders of Germany.
