The End of Prussia
Gordon A. Craig
The Curti Lectures
"Craig once again displays his masterly command of German cultural and political history."
One of the livelier debates amongst historians concerns the dates of the beginning and, particularly, the end of Prussian history. Eminent historian Gordon A. Craig explores the slow death of Prussia by examining several key individuals and their actions at four distinct periods of Prussian history.
"Simply said, the book is a beautiful piece. Insightful and lucid . . . The End of Prussia has the rare quality of being suitable for both the specialist and the more casual student of German history."Wisconsin Academy Review
"Craig approaches his theme through four pairings of prominent individuals (Stein and Marwitz; Bismarck and Bettina von Arnim; Wilhelm II and Fontane; Adenauer and Otto Braun) who, he feels, represent differing and opposing strands of Prussian history in the post-1806 phase of inexorable decline. . . . Craig once again displays his masterly command of German cultural and political history."V.R. Berghahn, History
Gordon A. Craig is the J. E. Wallace Sterling Professor Emeritus of Humanities at Stanford. His latest book is Politics and Culture in Modern Germany.
