Media and the Making of Modern Germany

This chapter focuses on the relationship between the expansion of modern media and the changing nature of popular politics. Even before the First World War, the gradual emergence of new patterns of perception and expectation promoted by the media had profound implications for processes of popular political mobilization. How political elites sought to adapt to these developments, and how their efforts were related to evolving currents within the realm of commercial advertising, is the central subject. The chapter surveys the wide-ranging German discourse on public opinion, propaganda and the nature of political leadership during and after the First World War, which strongly influenced conceptions of political mobilization.
