Statistical Science, Cartography, and the Visualization of the German Nation, 1848-1914

Jason D. Hansen

Oxford Studies in Modern European History

  • Approaches the radicalization of nationalism in nineteenth-century Germany in a completely novel way
  • Demonstrates how Europeans learned to see nationality in a spatially specific and manipulable way - important for the understanding of German expansion in both world wars
  • Contains many useful maps for a clearer understanding of the subject
  • Contains a clear discussion of the build-up of the Imperial German Census Bureau
