Hi, so it looks like there is quite a lot of people here who are rather knowledgeable on the topic, so I figured I'd ask. What is considered as the "state of art" work on the German Empire as of now? I mean a general, global study that does not focus on a particular point, but gives the global overview of the subject, while still being rigorous and precise enough. Germany, 1870-1918, nothing more but nothing less. Is that Berghahn guy any good? What about Wehler? Or maybe there is a completely different authority in the field? German-only books are fine(though I would guess if it was really a success it would get a translation).
