Synopsis: This is the first systematic analysis of German public opinion at the outbreak of the Great War. Jeffrey Verhey's powerful study demonstrates that the myth of war enthusiasm was historically inaccurate. He also examines the development of the myth in newspapers, politics and propaganda, and the propagation and appropriation of this myth after the war. His innovative analysis sheds new light on German experience of the Great War and on the role of political myths in modern German political culture.

Review: "...this is an innovative work" Holger H. Herwig Canadian Jrnl of His.

"The important of Verhey's book lies, above all, in his analysis of the concept of the "spirit of 1914."...Verhey had written an interesting and important book." Jrnl of Interdisciplinary History

"...indispensable for a deeper understanding of Germany in World War I and following decades...it is admirable in pursuing detailed social analysis and yet speaking to the very largest issues of memory and shifting social consensus." The Historian

"Verhey's superbly researched, convincingly argued case study illuminates the Clausewitzian relationship between popular passion, government policymaking, and military capability." Military Review

"...Jeffrey Verhey's study is an impressive piece of scholarship. If it continues to inspire as much research as it has in the past, we can all be grateful." Central European History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book, first published in 2000, is a systematic analysis of German public opinion at the outbreak of the Great War and the first treatment of the myth of the spirit of 1914 , which stated that in August 1914 all Germans felt war enthusiasm and that this enthusiasm constituted a critical moment in which German society was transformed. Jeffrey Verhey s powerful study demonstrates that the myth was historically inaccurate. Although intellectuals and much of the upper class were enthusiastic, the emotions and opinions of most of the population were far more complex and contradictory. The book further examines the development of the myth in newspapers, politics and propaganda, and the propagation and appropriation of this myth after the war. His innovative analysis sheds light on German experience of the Great War and on the role of political myths in modern German political culture. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780521771375
