“The Shortest History of Germany” published in Persian

TEHRAN – “The Shortest History of Germany: From Julius Caesar to Angela Merkel — A Retelling for Our Times” by James Hawes has recently been published in Persian by Markaz.

Saeid Moqaddam is the translator of the book first published in 2019.

The book is a highlight reel of the must-know moments across two millennia of world-changing history, from the Roman age to Charlemagne to von Bismarck to Merkel. 

“The Shortest History” books deliver thousands of years of history in one riveting, fast-paced read.

A country both admired and feared, Germany has been the epicenter of world events time and again: the Reformation, both world wars, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. 

It did not emerge as a modern nation until 1871—yet today, Germany is the world’s fourth-largest economy and a standard-bearer of liberal democracy.

“There’s no point studying the past unless it sheds some light on the present,” writes James Hawes in this brilliantly concise history that has already captivated hundreds of thousands of readers. 

“It is time, now more than ever, for us all to understand the real history of Germany,” he notes.

He is Reader in Creative Writing at Oxford Brookes University. His journalism and reviews have appeared in every UK broadsheet and many quality magazines. 

He has appeared on R4 “Today”, Channel 4 News, Sky News Live and GB News Live.
