Germany and the Americas

Culture, Politics, and History

Thomas Adam, Editor

3 Volumes

From the medical discoveries of Dr. Johann Siegert, surgeon general to Simon Bolivar, to the amazing explorations of the early-19th-century German explorer Alexander von Humboldt, whose South American and Caribbean travels made him one of the most celebrated men in Europe, Germany and the Americas examines both the profound Germanic cultural and political legacy throughout the Americas and the lasting influence of American culture on the German-speaking world.

Ever since Baron von Steuben helped create George Washington's army, German Americans have exhibited decisive leadership not only in the military, but also in politics, the arts, and business. Germany and the Americas charts the lasting links between the Germanic world and the nations of the Americas in a comprehensive survey featuring a chronology of key events spanning 400 years of transatlantic history.


Individual articles cover all facets of German-American relations, complete with extensive end-of-entry references

Extensive and wide-ranging illustrations feature pictures of figures from Babe Ruth to Alexander von Humboldt
