Dr. Gabriel Publishes book on Imperial German Politics

What might 19th-century imperial Germany have in common with today’s American democracy and the global war on terror?

In Assassins and Conspirators: Anarchism, Socialism, and Political Culture in Imperial Germany (Northern University Press, 2014), Elun T. Gabriel, St. Lawrence University associate professor of history, explores the emergence of a continental European social democratic political party that struggled to separate itself from the emerging anarchist movement, which endorsed achieving socialist goals through terrorism. The book explores how people think about what is politically legitimate or not, and the role of liberal democratic norms, especially about free and open debate, in the life of a nation.
