Preface -- The pattern of society -- The economic environment -- The social structure -- Class and reform -- The clash of ideologies -- The liberal creed -- Conservatism and the old order -- The emergence of socialism -- The system of politics -- Status and power -- Civic organizations -- Public opinion.

The diplomatic and political events leading to the establishment of the German Empire have been studied extensively, but the social matrix of civic activity has been sadly neglected. Professor Hamerow fills this gap by dealing first with the development of the economy and the community under the influence of industrialization. He then considers the ideologies of the era and the groups supporting them: liberalism and the middle class; conservatism and the outlook of the old order; socialism and the emerging industrial working class. The final section of his book is on the structure of politics: the system of parties, the nature of civic organizations, and public opinion.
