Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Although the German states never had a successful republican revolution comparable to the United States, republican and liberal ideals did have an impact on German political culture. Heideking (modern history, U. of Cologne, Germany) and Henretta (history, U. of Maryland) present 14 papers that comparatively examine republican and liberal developments in the United States and Germany over the course of a century. Among the topics addressed are the relative contributions of women to republican dialogue, Immanuel Kant's understanding of republican forms of government, the evolution of republicanism into liberalism, comparative descriptions of constitutions, and nationalist versus civic public celebrations and political rituals.

From the Publisher
"...a rich, pathbreaking volume that should stimulate further debate and research on both sides of the Atlantic. ...a very welcome addition to the literature and deserves a wide-readership." German Studies Review
