The second of four catalogues of theses and dissertations in the field of Germanic studies (excluding English) approved for higher degrees in the Universities of Great Britain and Ireland, this volume covers the period between 1962 and 1967.
Of the 156 items now added, no fewer than 59 are concerned wholly or in part with German literature of the twentieth century - only eighteen fewer than the 77 theses and dissertations devoted to the rest of German literature from its beginnings to the end of the nineteenth century. This constitutes a tribute to the fascination exerted by recent German writers and the rich variety of twentieth-century literature whilst giving some indication of the way in which the age is concerned with its own problems, and with radical reorientations of Germanic studies at British Universities.
Theses and dissertations are listed alphabetically by author, and the catalogue has a preface and subject index.
