9780020311409: The Triumph of Liberalism: Zurich in the Golden Age, 1830-1869

A history of how Switzerland, pre-eminently Zurich, emerged as a model in the struggle for political freedom. The author celebrates the achievement of Switzerland's most dynamic city-canton in creating a paradigm for liberalism. He brings to life such diverse figures as Richard Wagner, Alfred Escher, Jonas Furrer, Gottfried Semper, Francesco De Sanctis and Friedrich Vischer, who became partners in creating a culture that combined "geld und geist", gold and spirit, so as to avoid the extremes of Utopian radicalism and reactionary conservatism.
