This collection of new studies in German history is published in honour of John A. Moses, one of Australia's foremost German historians. The essays collected here, written by some of the most distinguished scholars working in America, Europe, and Australia, reflect the contribution that Professor Moses has made to our understanding of modern German history, and, in particular, to the complex relationship among the Church, the State, and opposition movements such as Trade Unionism and Communism. This volume also includes important essays on: the interaction of power and ideology in Germany from the Kaiserreich to the Third Reich; the development of democratic movements in Germany; debates within contemporary historiography; and Australian-German perspectives. John A. Moses was educated at the universities of Queensland, Munich, and Erlangen, where he took his doctorate on Carl Legien and the Free Trade Unions in Germany. Dr. Moses has published widely on matters as diverse as the Fischer controversy, Germany imperialist policies in the Far East and Trade Union Theory in Germany and elsewhere. He has recently retired from his position of Associate Professor in the History Department at the University of Queensland.
