Arguably one of the most important figures in nineteenth-century European history, Otto von Bismarck is well known for being the architect of the German Empire and for his fiery speechs. In addition, this dynamic statesman is also credited with developing for Germany a common currency and central bank, a single code of commercial and civil law and introducing the world's first modern welfare scheme to provide benefits to the sick, accident victims and the elderly.
Bismarck was one of the most important figures in nineteenth-century European history. This new biography reassesses Bismarck's significance, leaving the reader with a strongly etched portrait of one of the decisive makers of the modern world.
