9781442628526: Germany's Second Reich: Portraits and Pathways (German and European Studies)

Despite recent studies of imperial Germany that emphasize the empire’s modern and reformist qualities, the question remains: to what extent could democracy have flourished in Germany’s stony soil? In Germany’s Second Reich, James Retallack continues his career-long inquiry into the era of Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm II with a wide-ranging reassessment of the period and its connections with past traditions and future possibilities.

In this volume, Retallack reveals the complex and contradictory nature of the Second Reich, presenting Imperial Germany as it was seen by outsiders and insiders as well as by historians, political scientists, and sociologists ever since.

About the Author:

James Retallack is a professor of History and German Studies at the University of Toronto. His most recent book for the University of Toronto Press was The German Right, 1860–1920.

Review:

‘This sparkling collection of essays focuses on the acute political and social tensions that wracked Germany from 1866 to 1918... This is a work in which a leading scholar brings fresh analytical insights to bear on the age of Bismarck and Wilhelm... Highly recommended.’

(S. Bailey Choice Magazine vol 53:06:2016)

‘This volume is a sprightly, critical introduction to the recent historiography of imperial Germany’s domestic politics.’

(Isabel V. Hull German Studies Review vol 40:01:2017)
