From acclaimed historian Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger, an incomparable introduction to this momentous period in the history of Europe The Holy Roman Empire emerged in the Middle Ages as a loosely integrated union of German states and city-states under the supreme rule of an emperor, and would endure until its dissolution in 1806 during the Napoleonic Wars. Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger provides a concise history of the empire, presenting an interpretation of its unique political culture and remarkably durable institutions. In a narrative spanning three turbulent centuries, Stollberg-Rilinger shows how it was a political body unlike any other, bound together by personal loyalty and reciprocity, tradition and shared purpose, and constantly reenacted by solemn rituals.

This important book advances a new interpretation of the Holy Roman Empire that promises to free analyses of the empire's inner workings from the burdens of contemporary political memory. Stollberg-Rilinger makes the imperial political system, endlessly complex though it was, accessible and comprehensible to a wider audience.--David M. Luebke, author of Hometown Religion: Regimes of Coexistence in Early Modern Westphalia Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger, one of Germany's leading historians, provides an elegant, succinct, and thought-provoking account of that most baffling of states, the Holy Roman Empire. Her distinctive and novel approach balances the recent, more positive assessment of the empire as a functioning political structure with an innovative interpretation of its conservative political culture. Readers are given a clear explanation of why it overcame some problems and not others, and why it ended in 1806.--Peter H. Wilson, author of Heart of Europe: A History of the Holy Roman Empire
