During the nineteenth century a powerful and unified Germany emerged from a collection of over 350 independent states and cities. Gorman uses a wide range of primary sources to look at the role of Bismarck in this transformation. This successful volume in the Cambridge Topics in History series is reprinted with a full colour cover.
The author considers the various factors which helped to forge German unity: the role of Bismarck; the growth of liberalism and nationalism within Germany; the state of European politics prior to 1871; and the impact of a burgeoning German economy.
