7 Nor is it entirely free from misprints and errors. There are some oddities in the German on page 481, for instance; Samoa is misspelt on page 285; the paragraphing has gone awry on page 244; on page 260 the author appears to believe that Windthorst freed the Centre Party from the bugbear of anti-semitism for all time; and a gremlin seems to have got into the printing press when it came to setting dates (e.g. pages 164, 203).

9 There are also a few oddities in the translation (on page 188 the Freikorps appear as ‘commandos’), a handful of solecisms (‘it's’ for ‘its’ on page 201, for example), some misprints in the German (the printer has been too free with umlauts, e.g. on page 118, where we encounter an author called Goëthe), and even a small number of errors (as on page 60, where M. Ayçoberry evidently thinks Otto Bauer was a German Social Democrat).

10 I use this term to indicate that what these historians emphasize is the self-generating radicalism of political and administrative structures, independent of the intentions of those operating within them or of socio-economic forces acting upon them from outside.
