Editorial Reviews

`A Concise German Grammar meets the dual requirements of comprehensiveness and concision (requirements which in the case of some published grammars seems to be mustually exclusive).. I think it achieves these aims admirably and I believe it is likely to be more helpful to students than thestandard reference work, 'Hammer', which first-and second-year undergraduates often find unwieldy and difficult.. The author presents succint, readable explanations of all the key areas of grammar.'Carol Gray and Brenda Cox, German Teaching
