Prominent American, British and German historians provide new insights into the social, political, and intellectual components of German conservatism from its origins in the late 18th century through to the end of the Third Reich. The essays combine fresh empirical research with new theoretical and historiographical perspectives to provide the basis for a collective reassessment of the role that conservatism has played in Germany's national development.

Industry Reviews

'The excellent introduction to the book by the two editors gives, as is to be expected, due account of the typologies of German conservatism...as well as its historiography. No less outstanding is the chapter by Christopher M. Clark dealing with the early nineteenth-century Prussian conservatives.' Central European History '...this volume shows that German conservatism is a thriving, exciting field full of outstanding scholarship and wide open to innovative research.' Conference Group on German Politics '... important and scholarly collection of essays on various aspects of German conservatism from the post-Napoleonic era to the collapse of the Third Reich' German History
