Overview

"Politics is the art of the possible," Otto Von Bismarck famously said, and here, in his own words, the art of politics is laid bare by one of the most prominent and influential European statesmen of the nineteenth century. These are the intimate reflections and reminiscences of the man who unified the independent Germanic states into one nation, and whose subsequent promotion of the new country's colonial ambitions earned him the title of the founder of the German empire.

This second volume of what must be considered an essential historical document details the beginnings of Bismarck's attempts to consolidate the German states and his confrontations with the military through the political intrigues of the young nation and Bismarck's contentious relationship with the crown after unification. It is vital reading for any informed, in-depth understanding of modern European history.
