Our Fritz : Emperor Frederick III and the political culture of imperial Germany by Frank Lorenz Müller( )

15 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On June 15, 1888, a mere ninety-nine days after ascending the throne to become king of Prussia and German emperor, Frederick III succumbed to throat cancer. Europeans were spellbound by the cruel fate nobly borne by the voiceless Fritz, who for more than two decades had been celebrated as a military hero and loved as a kindly gentleman. A number of grief-stricken individuals reportedly offered to sacrifice their own healthy larynxes to save the ailing emperor. Frank Lorenz Müller, in the first comprehensive life of Frederick III ever written, reconstructs how the hugely popular persona of 'Our Fritz' was created and used for various political purposes before and after the emperor's tragic death. Sandwiched between the reign of his ninety-year-old father and the calamitous rule of his own son, the future emperor William II, Frederick III served as a canvas onto which different political forces projected their hopes and fears for Germany's future. The book moves beyond the myth that Frederick's humane liberalism would have built a lasting Anglo-German partnership, perhaps even preventing World War I, and beyond the castigations and exaggerations of parties with a different agenda. Surrounded by an unforgettable cast of characters that includes the emperor's widely hated English wife, Vicky--daughter of Queen Victoria--and the scheming Otto von Bismarck, Frederick III offers in death as well as in life a revealing, poignant glimpse of Prussia, Germany, and the European world that his son would help to shatter."--Publisher's Web site
Britain and the German question : perceptions of nationalism and political reform, 1830-63 by Frank Lorenz Müller( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It lays bare British interests, preconceptions and preoccupations and explains what kind of united Germany Britain would have welcomed." "The book thus illuminates three themes crucial to our understanding of nineteenth-century Europe: the international repercussions of German nationalism; Britain's attitude to continental politics: and the interlocking of liberalism, nationalism, revolution and reform."--Jacket
Die Revolution von 1848/49 by Frank Lorenz Müller( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in German and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hauptbeschreibung Ausgehend von einer Analyse der politischen und sozialen Krise Deutschlands im Vormärz verfolgt Franz Lorenz Müller die Hauptstränge der mannigfachen revolutionären Veränderungsprozesse zwischen März 1848 und Juli 1849. Der Fokus richtet sich dabei nicht nur auf die politische Revolution des liberalen Bürgertums, die mit einer Fundamentalpolitisierung und Kommunikationsrevolution einherging, sondern ebenso auf die Forderungen und Aktionsformen von Bauern, Arbeitern, städtischen und ländlichen Unterschichten sowie von unterprivilegierten Schichten (Frauen, Juden).

Royal heirs in imperial Germany : the future of monarchy in nineteenth-century Bavaria, Saxony and Württemberg by Frank Lorenz Müller( )

11 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the development and viability of Germany's sub-national monarchies in the decades before their sudden demise in 1918. It does so by focusing on the men who turned out to be the last ones to inherit the crowns of the country's three smaller kingdoms: Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, Prince Friedrich August of Saxony and Prince Wilhelm of Wurttemberg. Imperial Germany was not a monolithic block, but a motley federation of more than twenty allied regional monarchies, headed by the Kaiser. When the German Reich became a republic at the end of the First World War, all of these kings, grand dukes, dukes and princes were swept away within a fortnight. By examining the lives, experiences and functions of these three men as heirs to the throne during the decades when they prepared themselves for their predestined role as king, this study investigates what the future of the German model of constitutional monarchy looked like before it was so abruptly discarded
Sons and heirs : succession and political culture in nineteenth-century Europe by Frank Lorenz Müller( )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the century that followed the defeat of Napoleonic France, Europe experienced its last monarchical age. In spite of dramatic changes in almost every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life, monarchical systems survived in rude health across the continent and only the First World War would put a dramatic end to many of them. By focusing on the role played by heirs to the throne, this volume offers an original perspective on the ability of monarchies to flourish under the dramatically altered conditions of the nineteenth century. The contributions consider the place of royal heirs within their families, their education and accommodation, their ability to overcome succession crises, the consequences of the death of an heir and finally the roles royal heirs played during the First World War. Ranging across Britain, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Prussia, Württemberg and Denmark the international team of specialists contributing to this volume paint a portrait that is both analytical and truly European"--
Royal heirs and the uses of soft power in nineteenth-century Europe by Frank Lorenz Müller( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a fascinating selection of studies exploring the soft power tools used by heirs to the throne in order to enhance the communication of monarchies with their audiences during the nineteenth-century. How we perceive royals and their dynasties today – as families, as celebrities, as charitable figureheads of society or as superfluous relics of a bygone age – has deep roots in the monarchical cultures of nineteenth-century Europe. By focusing on the role played by heirs to the throne, this volume offers an original perspective on the ability of monarchies to persuade sceptical audiences, nourish positive emotions and thereby strengthen the position of each dynasty within its respective nation. Using examples from Britain, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, Greece, Sweden, Norway and Prussia, an international team of experts analyzes and explains the development of the very soft power tools which are still being used by Ruling Houses today
Sites of imperial memory : commemorating colonial rule in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by Dominik Geppert( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe's great colonial empires have long been a thing of the past, but the memories they generated are still all around us. They have left deep imprints on the different memory communities that were affected by the processes of establishing, running and dismantling these systems of imperial rule, and they are still vibrant and evocative today. This volume brings together a collection of innovative and fresh studies exploring different sites of imperial memory - those conceptual and real places where the memories of former colonial rulers and of former colonial subjects have crystallised into a lasting form. The volume explores how memory was built up, re-shaped and preserved across different empires, continents and centuries. It shows how it found concrete expression in stone and bronze, how it adhered to the stories that were told and retold about great individuals and how it was suppressed, denied and neglected. --
