Birth of a Nation: Germany, 1848-1888
This is a three-volume project examining the role of revolutionary, liberal nationalism in the formation and consolidation of a German nation-state. The study argues that many of the principal elements of national debate in Germany derived from the practical political and constitutional questions faced by liberals during and after the revolution of 1848-49. A surprising number of liberal proposals were incorporated into the defining political structure of the Kaiserreich, which in turn had significant consequences for the debates and institutions of the Weimar Republic. By viewing nationalism as a form of politics, the volumes aim to question historians’ emphasis on a supposedly late unification of Germany ‘from above’, the weakness of political parties and liberalism, and the existence of a flawed system of government. The volumes are designed to be self-contained and will be published separately: 1. A German Revolution, 1848-49; 2. Revolutionary Nation, 1848-1866 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2010); 3. German Unification, 1866-1888.
