- Otto Von Bismarck Or Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince Von Bismarck, - 1,758 words
Otto von Bismarck or Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince von Bismarck, Count von Bismarck-Schnhausen, Duke von Lauenburg--was a Prussian statesman who in 1871 founded the German Empire and served as its first chancellor for 19 years. Once the empire was established, he actively and skillfully pursued pacific policies in foreign affairs, succeeding in preserving the peace in Europe for about two decades. But in domestic policies his patrimony was less benign, for he failed to rise above the authoritarian proclivities of the landed squirearchy to which he was born (Britannica, 1997).

- Causes Of World War I - 1,300 words

Profound improvements in war technology, growing tensions between neighboring European ethnic groups, and a comprehensive system of alliances and treaties, which all defined The First World War, resulted in the essential annihilation of an entire generation of European men and led to an equally devastating War twenty-five years later.

- Germany - 1,372 words
Germany The essays which this paper is based on, Liberalism and society: The Feminist Movement and Social Change, The Politics of Demagogy in Imperial Germany, The Mythology of the Sonderweg, and A Bonapartist Dictatorship were enlightening, but tended to repeat a central theme, the unwillingness of the Junkers of Germany to give up even the smallest bit of their power over the lower classes.

The German writer E. T. A.
