The book is broken down into three chronological sections studying political relations between 1860-1880, 1880-1906 and then the deteriorating period prior to WW1. Interspersed between are two sections that draw together the political background by examining the roles of public opinion; the debates within the various political groupings and parties; the role of the press, religious and cultural attitudes and the monarchy. Both the Kaiser who held a position of great authority and power within the German political structure and Queen Victoria and Edward VII were of significant presence and influence within their own structures of power. There is in-depth examination of the diplomatic principles, private opinions, attempts to use and manipulate the press and influence party and public opinion.
In some ways the arguments in this book are very obvious and easy to follow.Read more ›
