About this title


"A well-written, stimulating. . . piece of scholarship." -German Studies Review. In a major re-evaluation of the cultural, political, and sociological assumptions about the "peculiar" course of modern German history, the authors challenge the widely-held belief that Germany did not have a Western-style bourgeois revolution. Contending that it did indeed experience one, but that this had little to do with the mythical rising of the middle class, the authors provide a new context for viewing the tensions and instability of 19th-and early 20th-century Germany.


`It is a lucid <em>tour de force</em> illuminating innumerable aspects of European as well as of German history in a conflictive period. There can be no doubt that it will soon acquire classic status.' <em>British Book News</em>.
