A masterful study! Professor Schorske’s book combines the methodological thoroughness of a scholarly monograph with the breadth of political insight needed to investigate and explain Social Democratic history.Journal of Central European Affairs

A brilliant and formidable analysis of the SDP in the period immediately following its formal rejection of revisionism… An extraordinary synthesis of intellectual, political and sociological history. [Schorske] succeeds in placing the story of the SDP in the general framework of German internal and foreign politics. He has a special flair for the lucid statement of difficult ideas, and combines this with a patience when dealing with endless materials concerning the institutional structures on both the national and the local level, of the party and the trade union movement alike.World Politics
