Natural History of the German People
|Author: ||Diephouse, David|
von Riehl, Wilhelm
A translation and abridgement of von Riehl's Naturgeschichte des Volkes als Grundlage einer deutschen Social-Politik. Von Riehl's specific views, while of only historical interest today, are crucial to any informed discussion of German social history and would also be valuable for a study of social theory and social science research methods. Von Riehl's description of his countrymen's folkways and social relationships remains a valid and often vivid testimony to one of the pivotal eras in the development of modern Germany. Potentially useful as a supplemental reader for courses in German history and culture or European social history.
