"Iron Kingdom traces Prussia's involvement in the continent's foundational religious and political conflagrations: from the devastations of the Thirty Years War through centuries of political machinations to the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire, from the enlightenment of Frederick the Great to the destructive conquests of Napoleon, and from the "iron and blood" policies of Bismarck to the creation of the German Empire in 1871, with all that implied for the tumultuous twentieth century."--Jacket
Kaiser Wilhelm II by Christopher M Clark( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kaiser Wilhelm II is one of the key figures in the history of twentieth-century Europe: King of Prussia and German Emperor from 1888 to the collapse of Germany in 1918 and a crucial player in the events that led to the outbreak of World War I. Drawing on a wide range of sources including unpublished archival material, this study focuses on: the character and extent of his power; his political goals; his success in achieving them; the mechanisms by which he projected authority and exercised influence; his role in the formation of foreign policy and his impact on the events of July 1914; and his part in the German leadership's world-historical decision to risk unconditional submarine warfare in 1917." "Following Kaiser Wilhelm's political career from his youth at the Hohenzollern court through the turbulent peacetime decades of the Wilhelmine era into global war and exile, the book presents a new interpretation of this controversial monarch and assesses the impact on Germany of his forty-year reign."--BOOK JACKET
The politics of conversion : missionary Protestantism and the Jews in Prussia, 1728-1941 by Christopher M Clark( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These themes are analysed within the context of the rapidly changing relationship between religion and politics in the Prussian state, for 'Jewish Questions', as this book shows, were intimately connected with 'Christian Questions' of equal political and social consequence. This study sheds light on a facet of Jewish-German history that has been overshadowed by the rise of racial antisemitism and the ultimate tragedy of the Holocaust

Wilhelm II. : die Herrschaft des letzten deutschen Kaisers by Christopher M Clark( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Leben des letzten deutschen Kaisers Christopher Clark folgt der Karriere des letzten deutschen Kaisers: die schwierige Jugend bei Hof, die Etablierung seiner Macht sowie seine politischen Auseinandersetzungen und Ziele. Mit dem Ersten Weltkrieg endet auch die Herrschaft Wilhelms II. Der Kaiser dankt ab und muss den Rest seines Lebens im Exil verbringen. Clarks sorgfältig recherchiertes Buch bietet eine neue, zuweilen provokante Interpretation des Monarchen und seiner dreissig Jahre währenden Regentschaft. Hätte Deutschland einen anderen Weg eingeschlagen, wenn ein anderer Herrscher als Wilhelm II. das Land ins 20. Jahrhundert geführt hätte? Inwieweit prägte seine Persönlichkeit die deutschen Geschicke? Christopher Clark nimmt zunächst Wilhelms Kindheit und Jugend in den Blick. Vater und Grossvater, und damit zwei politische Lager - das progressive und das reaktionäre - stritten um die Erziehung des Prinzen. 1888 folgte Wilhelm seinem Vater auf den Thron. Clark untersucht Wilhelms aussen- wie innenpolitisches Wirken und betrachtet schliesslich auch dessen Rolle im Sommer 1914. Nach dem verlorenen Krieg und seiner Abdankung wurde Wilhelm II. zum Objekt des Hasses. Und noch heute ist sein Image weitgehend negativ. Clarks Ziel ist es nicht, Wilhelm II. zu rehabilitieren. Und doch fragt er zu Recht, ob die Geschichtsschreibung nicht zu einer Dämonisierung des letzten deutschen Kaisers beigetragen hat. 150. Geburtstag Wilhelms II. am 27. Januar 2009

The sleepwalkers : how Europe went to war in 1914 by Christopher M Clark( Recording )
3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Sleepwalkers is historian Christopher Clark's riveting account of the explosive beginnings of World War I. Drawing on new scholarship, Clark offers a fresh look at World War I, focusing not on the battles and atrocities of the war itself but on the complex events and relationships that led a group of well-meaning leaders into brutal conflict. Clark traces the paths to war in a minute-by-minute, action-packed narrative that cuts between the key decision centers in Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Paris, London, and Belgrade, and he examines the decades of history that informed the events of 1914 and details the mutual misunderstandings and unintended signals that drove the crisis forward in a few short weeks" --
