Mr. G. HARRISON BROWN: ' Gerniany-II,
Bismarck, and the Making of a Nation '
It is often forgotten that of all the leading peoples of Europe the Germans were the last to achieve national unity. They owe it primarily to Bismarck, who, during thirty years of control of Prussian policy, worked unremittingly and fought the wars of 1866 and 1870 against Austria and France to achieve his ideal. His dismissal by the young Knisor in 1890—' tho dropping of the pilot '-inaugurated the era of irresponsible imperialism, clumsy diplomacy, and. economic expansion that culminated in 1914. German union was achieved at the price of Prussian domination, supported by monarchy, militarism, and a powerful bureaucracy that neglected deep-rooted elements in many parts of the country that derived from the past. Mr. G. Harrison Brown sketches the legacy of the centuries of disunion, as well as the recent decades of unity, in his account tonight of the making of the German nation.
