Summary Red Saxony reappraises Germany's prospects for democratic governance from the mid-nineteenth century to the collapse of the Second Reich, asking: how was Germany governed in the era of Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm II? How did fear of revolution push liberal and conservative parties together? How did Germany's leaders see their nation's future?
