Bismarck: A Political History (Routledge Historical Biographies)
Bismarck was arguably the most important figure in nineteenth-century European history after 1815. In this biography, Edgar Feuchtwanger reassesses Bismarck's significance as a historical figure. He traces his development from a typical Junker, a reactionary and conservative, into the so-called white revolutionary who recast European affairs more drastically than anyone since Napoleon. This second edition includes a new introduction, taking into account the most recent scholarship on Bismarck, which reflects on Bismarck's legacy in modern Germany, which is once again the European economic powerhouse for which Bismarck laid the foundations.
Feuchtwanger's lucid account demythologizes the German leader without demonising him. This book leaves the reader with a strongly-etched portrait of one of the decisive makers of the modern world.
'It is good to have so accessible a biography of Bismarck in one volume. Feuchtwanger takes account of much of the recent writing on the history of the period. Especially valuable is the highlighting of connections between Bismarck's domestic and foreign policies'.John Breuilly, University of Birmingham
