Summary An in-depth analysis of political organization and democratization during the crucial 18601920 period in Sweden and Germany, this book centers on the formation of liberalism. It argues that despite ideology's individualistic traitswhich made liberals less susceptible to political organization on a mass basisits followers chose to compromise between individual and collective action. Revealing how Swedish liberalism made way for peaceful democratization and collective modes of societal organization while German liberalism turned conservative and prepared for Nazism and extremist nationalism, this record explores the mobilization, formation, and subsequent development of liberalism in these regions
