Publication in German of History of the Holy Roman Empire

September saw the publication in German of Joachim Whaley's acclaimed two-volume history of the Holy Roman Empire 1493-1806 (Oxford University Press). The Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft has produced the translation in record time and the volumes are already arousing a lively interest.
