Reviews

" This is an important.[and] a very strong book. It successfully challenges older paradigms that separate German liberalism from imperialism or see the conjoining of the two as a late aberration." * German History

"The author's] elegant account...represents a timely and important contribution to the existing literature...[that] represents the most sustained attempt to reframe the argument." * The American Historical Review

"...this is a stimulating work with a solid argument and place in the current historiography. In this, it draws attention to the importance of discourse on overseas expansion within many sectors of the German liberal-nationalist movement." * Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire

"Fitzpatrick's short but hard-hitting book seeks to reinstate imperialism as a fundamental constituent of German liberalism. As such it is a welcome and worthy addition to Berghahn's invaluable 'Monographs in German History' series." * Central European History
