Hamerow Presents Lecture
On 1848 German Revolt

The German Revolution of 1848
was actually a combination of
revolutions, each with its own ide-
ology and objective, which united
to overthrow an oppressive system
of government, Prof. Theodore S.
Hamerow, of the University of
Wisconsin said.
"One revolution, the uprising of
the middle class, came to domi-
nate the political scene so com-
pletely that to this day it remains
the only revolution in the text-
book and the classroom," he ex-
plained to the history department.
in a lecture Wednesday.
Its accomplishments, the Frank-
furt Parliament, the fundamental
rights of the German people, andl
the constitution of March 28, 1849,1
have found a secure place in his-
tory, Prof. Hamerow declared. Yet
its fleeting success was made pos-
sible only by peasant revolts and
artisan riots.
Tensions Caused Insurrection
As far as the masses were con-I
cerned, he said, the insurrectionI
was the outcome of tensions gen-
erated by tie transition from the
agricultural manor system to in-
dustrial capitalism.
While the liberals essentially de-
manded the recognition of the
growing importance of the middle
class by giving it a vote of govern-
ment, "liberalism favored gov-
ernment by a minority," he added.I
"This minority was composed of
men of property and intelligence
drawn from the ranks of the old1
aristocracy of status and the newa
aristocracy of talent," Prof. Hame-+
row continued.I
Also liberalism defended the in-
terests of the bourgeoisie in eco-I
nomics. They demanded the crea-
tion of conditions favorable to]

the growth of industrial capitalism,
he reported.
Reduction in Expenditures
"They (the liberals) spoke of,
a reduction in expenditures fori
the armed forces rather than the
abolition of standing armies. They!
hastened to assure the world ofr
law and order that their demands,
were intended to be no more thanj
a subject of peaceful deliberation,"
Prof. Hamerow said, emphasizing'
the caution of the liberals.
He told the audience that the
land aristocracy was otherthrown
and replaced by middle class lead-
"Once the common foe fell, the
common purpose vanished. During
the spring uprising of 1848, the
middle class was able to enlist the;
aid of the worker and peasant.
During the spring uprising of 1849,
it could command only its slender
resources," he contrasted.'
Liberalism Subjected I
German liberalism was subjected
to the conflicting demands of in-
terests and classes which de-
scended on it as soon as it achieved
power, Prof. Hamerow continued.
"The rights of property took
precedence over the needs of men,
and arguments of the industrialist
prevailed over the appeals of the
artisan, liberty destroyed security,"
he explained.
This action made possible the
temporary restoration of the old
order. The time for an adjustment
of national life to changing social
conditions later returned. It was
finally under the auspices of a
policy of blood and iron that Cen-
tral Europe finally embraced the
machine age, le concluded.
