Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a thoughtful, original, well-researched, and well-written investigation of a central problem during a critical period of German history. It will be required reading for anyone wishing to understand how Prussia came to dominate Germany." --Tim Blanning, University of Cambridge


"Matthew Levinger's Enlightened Nationalism provides a fascinating exploration of Prussian political language in the first half of the nineteenth century, which astutely captures the specificities of the time. He both reframes the agenda for German historians and poses the important comparative questions." --Geoff Eley, University of Michigan


"In Enlightened Nationalism, Matthew Levinger asks us to rethink the common perception of Prussian history. This very readable book helps us to understand the rise of nationalism in Central Europe in the course of the 19th century and offers surprising new answers to the question of what kind of country Prussia was." --Hagen Schulze, Free University of Berlin "Was there a distinctive German path of modernization? Matthew Levinger presents a stimulating perspective on this controversial question. Prussia's nationalism responded to domination by a foreign power, while seeking to avoid endangering the historical foundations of the country's own political culture. Thus, the Prussian experience becomes an example from which one can learn about developments in the modern world." --Dieter Langewiesche, University of Tübingen

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Jane C. Weidman on March 12, 2001
Format: Hardcover
ENLIGHTENED NATIONALISM is a profound and lucid account of how nationalism arose in Germany by tracing its roots to Prussia in the early 1800's after Prussia's defeat by Napoleon. The author's research is based on his groundbreaking analysis of previously unavailable documents. He carefully describes the interplay between King Frederick III, his aristocratic advisers -- some liberal, others staunchly reactionary -- the traditionalist landed nobility, and the growingly restive citizenry in the struggles over whether and how to grant Prussia a constitution. The book's well-documented insights help us understand how Prussia later came to dominate Germany.
