Excerpt from History of Germany in the Nineteenth Century, Vol. 6

Roving somewhat discursively over the period 1830 to 1845, the present volume of Treitschke's History deals principally with German home policy, particularly in its political aspects. Here and there the historian turns aside in order to explain and justify Prussia's action on certain critical foreign questions which came to the front, like those of the Carlist rising in Spain and the Eastern question, but the interest of the narrative is in the main circumscribed by domestic affairs, and this interest increases as the concluding chapters are reached, forecasting as they do the political convulsions which occurred late in the forties.

Still steeped in reaction, Prussia continued to assert herself as the active partner of the even more reactionary empires whose policies were dictated from Vienna and St. Petersburg. More and more the antagonism between Eastern and Western Europe, both in aims and ideas, became emphasised under the sinister influence of Mctternich. Treitschke contends that the antagonism was really artificial and imaginary, and that the belief in its existence was a superstition, due to confusion of thought. Lord Palmerston spoke more truly when he said of the three Eastern Powers in 1836: "The three Powers

fancy their interests lie in a direction opposite to that in which we and France conceive ours to be placed. The separation is not one of words but of things; not the effect of caprice or of will, but produced by the force of circumstances. The three and the two think differently, and therefore they act differently, whether it be as to Belgium or Portugal or Spain."

The Eastern Powers still stood for the principles of the Holy Alliance, the object of which was to protect the political status of continental Europe against disturbance from any quarter.
