Editorial Reviews

`Berger has written an important work that actually practices what so many historians preach but do not carry out: comparative history. Berger reveals a greater consonance between the worldviews of British and German rank-and-file than had been recognized ... This book deserves to be read byBritish, German, and labor historians.'C.R. Jackson, University of California at Berkeley, Choice, January 1996 Vol.33 No.5
