Weimar Prussia, 1918–1925

The Unlikely Rock of Democracy

A provocative reinterpretation of Prussian political history between 1918 and 1925. . . . his research is thorough and impressive.

Orlow demonstrates that the success of parliamentary democracy in Prussia during the Weimar Republic found its roots in the strength of national unity developed during the nineteenth century, and the work of Catholics, Social Democrats, and Liberals during the time of Republic.
