Summary

This 1994 book examines the development of the modern idea of militarism from its inception in the 1860s until the outbreak of World War I. Imperial Germany witnessed a major controversy over the issue, as the arms race and the military-industrial complex displaced more traditional concerns about authoritarian rule, and militarism gradually acquired its modern meaning.
