Book Launch and Public Discussion: GERMAN SOCIAL DEMOCRACY THROUGH BRITISH EYES
When and Where
Wednesday, April 13, 2022 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
The speakers and the audience will discuss James Retallack's new collection of documents that examines the rise of the most powerful socialist party in the world through the eyes of British diplomats stationed in Germany. The documents raise the question of how people in one nation view people from another. They also illuminate political systems, election practices, and anti-democratic strategies in the highly industrialized federal state of Saxony. These primary sources will interest researchers and students of labour movement history or those wishing to move beyond the Prussian view of German history before 1914.
