Aberg, Martin Swedish and German Liberalism from Factions to Parties 1860-1920
Sweden: Nordic Academic Press, 2011. Cloth. As New/As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 9789185509546 At the start of the twentieth century, political parties had the potential to focus grass-roots interest in the development of modern, democratic nation-states. Yet all the new parties were met with suspicion across Europe, particularly among liberals. These popular misgivings and the way the liberals nevertheless managed to build a party are the subject of this book. In this book, historian Martin Aberg argues that because of liberalism's individualistic traits, which left liberals less susceptible to political organisation on a mass basis, party members had to come to an uneasy compromise between individual and collective action. Aberg compares two regions - Varmland in Sweden and Schleswig-Holstein in Germany - which historically both had a significant liberal presence. Despite its organisational shortcomings, liberalism in Sweden paved the way for the peaceful democratisation of the state. In Germany, however, liberalism turned conservative, foreshadowing the extreme nationalism and Nazism that was to come. Aberg argues that the peculiarities of organisational behaviour go some way to explain the very different outcomes. 246pp. (Book ref. 028237) £20.00
