Len's Summary: A bottom-up examination of the dynamics of politicization under Bismarck and Wilhelm II; “democracy in an undemocratic state.” Germany had universal male suffrage from 1871, but lacked parliamentary control over anything but the budget as government as ministers remained responsible only to the Kaiser who often became a spanner in the works.
