The Access to History series is the most popular and trusted series for AS and A level history students. The new editions combine all the strengths of this well-loved series with a new design and features that allow all students access to the content and study skills needed to achieve exam success. This is a new edition combining content from 'Weimar and the rise of Nazi Germany' with 'Germany: The Third Reich' to provide coherent and comprehensive coverage of the 2008 Edexcel AS specification.

It charts the developments in Germany from the Weimar years, to life in Nazi Germany and ultimately the fall of the Third Reich; and includes a concluding chapter drawing together the themes of this topic. Throughout the book key dates, terms and issues are highlighted, and historical interpretations of key debates are outlined. Summary diagrams are included to consolidate knowledge and understanding of the period, and exam-style questions and tips written by an examiner provide the opportunity to develop exam skills.
