classical-liberal asked: How's the book?
The book is titled German Liberalism in the Nineteenth Century by James J. Sheehan. It’s a very densely packed history of the crisis of German liberalism, so much so I have to read it slowly. There is some worth while information that explains the why parliamentary reforms and the German liberal parties had failed. I think once I am done I will have a better understanding of Modern Germany, and why the Wiemar Republic fell after the First World War, though the book doesn’t touch on that specifically. It has a lot of background info, and stuff I am not familiar with. It is a hard read, though.
