From Reich to Revolution by Peter H. Wilson
Book DescriptionGerman history after the Reformation is often seen as a confusing period of political failures before the emergence of powerful states like Prussia give some coherence to the national story. The inability of Emperor Charles V to solve Germany's political and religious problems by 1558 seems to condemn the country to the chaos of the Thirty Years War and the subsequent partition of the Reich, or Holy Roman Empire, into virtually independent states until its final collapse in 1806. Peter H. Wilson's major new study: - weaves insights from the latest research into a comprehensive account of German social, political and cultural development across two and a half centuries - addresses fundamental questions, such as how the apparently fragile structure of the Reich survived the trauma of the Thirty Years War and why, despite gross social inequality, Germany did not experience mass French-style revolution - provides a helpful glossary, detailed appendices and a guide to further reading to aid study

Heart of Europe, Hardback (February 2016)
The Holy Roman Empire lasted a thousand years, far longer than ancient Rome. Its continuity rested on the ideal of a unified Christian civilization. As Peter Wilson shows, the Empire tells the story of Europe better than histories of individual nation-states, and its legacy can be seen today in debates over the nature of the European Union.

Focusing on the Holy Roman Empire, from its founding by Charlemagne to its destruction by Napoleon a millennium later, formed the heart of Europe, this book that raises countless questions about the nature of political and military power, about diplomacy and the nature of European civilization and about the legacy of the Empire.
