Britain and the German Zollverein, 1848-66
This study focuses on Britain's relations with the Zollverein - the German Customs Union - in its later period. It includes Britain's reaction to the plans for commercial unity drawn up at Frankfurt in 1848 and whether it contributed to the failure of the revolution. It looks at the tumultuous Zollverein conferences of the 1850s, and the rumours of British spies attempting to sabotage further economic integration and decimate German industry. It reveals Britain's important role in Bismarck's thrust for economic leadership in the Zollverein crisis of the 1860s.
