Volume IV: 1851-1866

This volume of British Envoys to Germany presents official reports sent from the British missions in Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover, Dresden, Stuttgart, Munich and Vienna. The diplomatic correspondence selected for volume IV provides strong evidence that the period between the Dresden Conferences of 1851 and the Austro-Prussian war of 1866 should be seen as more than just a time of transition between the revolution of 1848 and German unification. In addition to international affairs and Anglo-German relations, the dispatches cover the federal dimensions of German politics and the policies and societies of the federal states.
