This is the first full-scale study in English of the reign of Frederick William IV, King of Prussia from 1840 to 1861, and arguably the most important German monarch in the century between the death of Frederick the Great and the accession of William II. Although Frederick William has long been criticized as a Romantic reactionary who was utterly out of touch with his times, this study reaches different conclusions, arguing that he was in fact a modern and in many ways, 'successful' monarch.

The book is not a biography in the traditional sense. Rather, it focuses on the structures, institutions and transformations of the monarchial system in Prussia during a time of revolutionary change. It thus represents a contribution to our understanding of the structures of the nineteenth-century European state, and the strategies by which conservative elites were able to adjust themselves to new circumstances.

Recensione:

fine political biography of the monarch...an important contribution, not only to the revision of received opinion on a misunderstood monarch, but also to the history of German monarchy in a crucial and neglected period of transition. (TLS)

clearly written and splendidly researched ... Barclay tells the King's story well. His opening chapter on the Prussian monarchy in its European context is a model of comparative analysis, from which every student of nineteenth-century Europe can benefit. He adds useful details to the rich historiography of the revolution and increases our knowledge of the usually neglected era of reaction. (James J. Sheehan, Stanford University, EHR Nov. 97)
