The Peculiarities of German History: Bourgeois Society and Politics in Nineteenth-Century Germany

Synopsis

"A well-written, stimulating...piece of scholarship." --German Studies Review.

In a major re-evaluation of the cultural, political, and sociologicalassumptions about the "peculiar" course of modern German history, the authorschallenge the widely held belief that Germany did not have a Western-stylebourgeois revolution. Contending that it did indeed experience one, but thatthis had little to do with the mythical rising of the middle class, the authorsprovide a new context for viewing the tensions and instability of 19th-and early20th-century Germany.
