Overview

"... fills an important gap in the survey literature of modern German history ... extraordinarily readable, compact and comprehensive coverage ... a balanced presentation of the arguments for and against positions on all sides ... Apt and lively quotations from contemporaries and present-day historians inform the story throughout. The reader will have a clear sense of historical progression and major connections, while leading personalities in all fields are recognizable characters. In all, a fine achievement." ยท Central European History

During recent years, there has been a noticeable increase in interest in the nineteenth century, resulting in many fine monographs. However, these studies often gravitate toward Prussia or treat Germany's southern and northern regions as separate entities or else are thematically compartmentalized. This book overcomes these divisions, offering a wide-ranging account of this revolutionary century and skillfully combining narrative with analysis. Its lively style makesit very accessible and ideal for all students of nineteenth-century Germany.

Eric Dorn Brose is well known for his work on Wilhelmine and pre-1848 Germany. He is Professor in the Department of History and Politics at Drexel University.
