Die Germanen: Geschichte und Mythos - Ein SPIEGEL-Buch by Norbert F. Pötzl, Johannes Saltzwedel

By Norbert F. Pötzl, Johannes Saltzwedel

Barbaren oder blonde Helden – wer waren die Ureinwohner Deutschlands?

Als Haudegen aus der Tiefe Nordeuropas beeindruckten und erschreckten sie die antike Welt. Ihr Widerstand gegen Rom, ihre zentrale Rolle in der Völkerwanderung und ihr Machtbewusstsein haben die Germanen zu Vorfahren vieler heutiger Nationen Europas werden lassen. Aber wer waren diese hellhäutigen, ihrer Stammesehre verpflichteten Naturmenschen wirklich? Und wo kamen sie her?

SPIEGEL-Autoren und Historiker gehen den – wissenschaftlich recht umstrittenen – Ursprüngen der Germanen nach, schildern die ersten Zusammenstöße mit den südlichen Nachbarn und das schwierige Zusammenleben mit dem Römischen Reich. Das Buch verfolgt die Spur der verschiedenen Stämme bis nach der Völkerwanderungszeit, als sie teils besiegt wurden, teils in eigenen Reichen zu regionaler Herrschaft gelangten, und zeigt, wie sie in den folgenden Jahrhunderten verklärt wurden.
