However, in western Europe in the year 1964 it is a very difficult task, because here and now there is no generally accepted overall theory of politics such as existed in the 18th century or exists today in the Communist world. Any attempot to write one must therefore be based on a personal approach." -- from the Foreword

While revealing the central importance of the previously neglected Bloch, and his journal in Wilhelmine Social Democracy, it also sheds fresh light on the thought of Bernstein and his role in classical German Social Democracy. The result of extensive research in Germany and Austria, it is based on a solid grasp of the secondary literature as well as a thorough mastery of all the relevant primary sources."

Politics and the Crisis of 1860, Graebner, Norman A. (Editor)
7 Graebner, Norman A. (Editor) Politics and the Crisis of 1860
Urbana University of Illinois Press 1961 First Hard Cover Good No Jacket Ex-Library Octavo 
156 pp. Light general and edgewear to boards. Library sticker residue to front cover. Library stamps to edges of text block. Internally, library impedimenta restricted to endpapers and title page. Text is clean, bright, unmarked. Book is solidly bound. "These five essays [by Graebner, Don E. Fehrenbacher, Robert W. Johannsen, William E. Baringer, and Avery Craven], commemorating the centennial of the first Lincoln election, were presented originally at the fourth annual Civil War Conference at Gettysburg College in November 1960. Each of these essays accepts the verdict that by the campaign of 1860 some form of crisis was inevitable. Nowhere do they insist that all choices had been eliminated except those which the North and South followed. Concerned broadly with the issues and events of the campaign, these essays dwell emphatically on the importance of slavery to the sectional conflict and to its impact on American politics."
