A witty and brilliant portrait, psychological as well as political, of one of the men who molded the destiny of modern Europe. Taylor's reexamination of Bismarck focuses on his rise to power in the 1860s and his removal from office in 1890.

"...this biography...combines scholarship with enthusiasm and possesses such rare charm that the temperature of our interest rises to zest."--Harold Nicolson, London Observer
