Anna Ross

  • Offers an original exploration of government after the 1848 revolutions
  • Demonstrates the importance of the post-revolutionary governments to state-building in Prussia and ultimately, to the formation of modern Germany
  • Embeds Prussian state-building within a general landscape of reform undertaken across the German states and Europe more broadly in the 1850s
