"The French edition ... appeared in the spring of 1936 under the title, L'Allemagne nouvelle.... The present English version, however, is more than a translation of the French text. Professor Lichtenberger has supplied several additional sections.... The editor has also revised the text and added numerous notes.... Completely new ... is the collection of documents contained in the appendix as well as the bibliography. Both are the work of the editor." --Editor's pref.
