Yet as this balanced and comprehensive study shows, the real Bismarck was a much more complicated figure than this traditional stereotype suggests. The 'Founder of the Reich' had been an opponent of liberal German nationalism; after the wars of 1866 and 1870, Bismarck spent the rest of his career working to preserve peace in Europe to protect the Reich he had created; and the reactionary enemy of socialism introduced comprehensive health and unemployment insurance for German workers."--Jacket." ;
