The History of Liberty in Germany

By Rudolf Olden
Gollancz, 1946
176 pp. $7.00

This somewhat meandering essay was written before World War II and is the author's last work, as he died in 1940. He finds in the militarism of the Prussian Junkers the great obstacle to liberalism in Germany, and declares that the failure of the Germans to defend their liberties was "because they never obtained their freedom by fighting for it."
