Book Reviews


Following the successive wars, the German people achieved a "late unification" in 1871, as political historians put it, causing a major shock in the European Harmony system established by the Vienna Congress. As the power balance system that lasted over half a century in Europe was becoming history, a new empire with the largest population and geographical area in the heart of the continent, and more importantly, with a massive economic and military power was emerging. During the same period, the administrators of the Ottoman Empire were trying to prevent the loss of territory of the 600-year-old empire and stop its weakening.
