KIRKUS REVIEW

Kreiger pores over German political history (especially the formation, influence, and decline of factions); he writes at great length about Kant; he branches out variously into sociology, cultural traditions, psychological predispositions, and particularly into the structure of government. Everything in some respect applies to the inner national consciousness of the nature and value of freedom, and gradual integration of libertarian features into the German government. By all odds it's a ponderous work, intricately reasoned, and cast into prolonged, colorless sentences that only the most sincere interest in the subject could sustain.
