The Weimar Republic , originally submitted in , received a favourable welcome among specialists and has now clearly proved its worth as a textbook on the subject. This has led to the need for new editions at intervals over several years. For the third edition the volume was thoroughly revised, and for the current sixth edition I have again examined and extended the text and brought the bibliography up to date.
In the process, attention was directed towards presenting the current state of research as precisely and comprehensively as possible, taking intensive note of more recent Weimar research.
In the section entitled 'Historical survey' the text has been checked and expanded in various places. The section 'Basic problems and trends of research' has been revised much more thoroughly; results and trends of the most recent research have been taken into account by dint of revising individual passages and making numerous additions to the text.
In the bibliographical section, a number of titles have been dropped and a great many more from recent research have been added, so that the scope of this section has widened markedly instead of the titles listed in the first edition there are now At this point, it is essential that I thank all those who accompanied the book at the time of its genesis or who have supported me through the various new editions.
