This work explores the German idea of federalism denoting "diversity within unity". Historians, linguists and political scientists examine how federalism emerged in the Holy Roman Empire, was re-shaped by 19th century cultural movements, and was adopted by the unified state in 1871 and again after 1945. The myth of federalism as a safeguard against totalitarianism is tested in regard to the Third Reich and the GDR. The book concludes with an outlook on German federalism's future in Europe.
