Abstract

Between 1890 and 1914 numerous Germans, many of whom were progressive liberals or social Protestants, looked favorably on social reform efforts in Great Britain. They held up reformism there as a mirror to reform in Germany, which in their view was too statecentered. Tendencies that were embodied in the Salvation Army, cooperatives, settlement houses, adult education, benevolent measures designed to assist young people, and philanthropic housing stood out as exemplary developments deserving emulation. Such thinking gives evidence of a vigorous civil society in Germany and runs counter to the growing British-German hostility emphasized by historians of international relations.
