In this book, the noted English historian A.J.P. Taylor examines the reasons for German's sudden entrance into the scramble for colonies. Professor Taylor takes issue with standard interpretations--a rising enthusiasm for colonies, public pressure on the government, a reversal of attitude on Bismarck's part--and instead seeks to explain Bismarck's colonial policy by fitting it into the structure of contemporary European politics.
