Bismarck was arguably the most important figure in nineteenth-century European history after 1815. In this biography, Edgar Feuchtwanger reassesses Bismarck's significance as a historical figure. He traces his development from a typical Junker, a reactionary and conservative, into the so-called white revolutionary who recast European affairs more drastically than anyone since Napoleon. This second edition includes a new preface, taking into account the most recent scholarship on Bismarck, which reflects on Bismarck's legacy in modern Germany - once again the European economic powerhouse for which Bismarck laid the foundations.
