Nineteenth-Century Germany: Nation-Building from Below and Above


Harold Marcuse
University of California, Santa Barbara

This lecture course examines central aspects of German history from the 1790s to the eve of World War I, focusing on how a diverse collection of rural peasants became organized in the most powerful state on the
European continent over the course of a century or so, and the problems that developed out of that unique process.
