Description: "German Home Towns certainly illuminates habits of life in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries which were as distinctively German as the peasant world of Grimm's Fairy Tales."—Times Literary Supplement Originally published in 1971, German Home Towns has been out of print for many years. Cornell University Press is pleased to make this classic book available again for the first time in a paperback edition. "[German Home Towns] is a book of the first importance. . . . [It] is a compelling illustration of what can be achieved by historians who abandon over-cropped Prussia and Austria in favor of the still unexploited regions of the 'Third Germany.'"—English Historical Review "[This book] breaks important new ground. . . . Walker's model . . . provides a useful kind of framework for what should hopefully be the next stage of German urban history: a recognition, through comparison, of urban diversity and an appreciation of this diversity within the broader concept of cultural cohesiveness."—Comparative Studies in Society and History
