From Bismarck to Adenauer: Aspects of German Statecraft
From Bismarck to Adenauer: Aspects of German Statecraft
By Gordon A. Craig
Johns Hopkins Press, 1958, 156 pp.

In these lectures, consisting chiefly of interpretative sketches of a number of German statesmen--Bismarck, Holstein, Bülow, Kiderlen-Wächter, Rathenau, Stresemann, Bruening and Adenauer--Professor Craig succeeds in giving both an illuminating survey of Germany's vicissitudes as a great power and his own reflections on the art of diplomacy.
