Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Editors Markus Moesslang, Sabine Freitag, and Peter Wende have done a superb job editing and annotating the volume. The introduction offers a cogent analysis of the principal themes; the subject index is thorough and thematically subdivided; and the annotated index of names is a trove of biographical information on both the famous and obscure in the Vormaerz period. We have here a first-rate research tool. It deserves to be a standard work in every referene library." H-German

"...interesting." The International History Review
