A German Revolution
Local change and Continuity in Prussia, 1918 - 1920
Originally published in 1991, although written in the 1970s when the New Orthodoxy was exerting its most powerful influence upon students of the period, this book examines what changed and what did not change in Germany as a result of the Revolution of 1918. It discusses in particular, aspects of German life which the Social Democrats had singled out for change, and specifically political, land, and educational reform and the liberalization of the cultural and artistic climate.
