Recent historians have challenged the long-held view that liberalism's failure in 19th century Germany presaged Hitler's triumph, claiming that earlier scholars have overlooked liberalism's positive contributions to German history. This book reassesses Frederick III's contribution to the liberal movement. Using documents recently made available from the Kurhessische Stiftung, the author considers the question of whether Frederick abetted the liberal movement's successes or was part of its tragic history.
