In November 1918 the Kingdom of Bavaria broke away from the German Reich and set up an independent People's State with Kurt Eisner as President. In February 1919 he was assassinated and left-wing elements, anarchists and then communists, set up successive short-lived soviets. But on in May, 1919 the uprising was crushed by German army troops and an extreme right-wing regime imposed which was to prepare the ground for the development of Nazism. Richard Grunberger studies closely the causes of the Bavarian revolution and delineates its shifting outlines, analysing the characters and political beliefs of its leaders before going on to survey the causes and consequences of their ultimate failure. Although the Munich uprising ended in disaster it is important now, at a time when formal democracy attracts increasing criticism, to look sympathetically at this experiment in council rule
