  • I had to write a research paper for my film class. I did all the prior research (had to write about the film Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock) gathered all the sources and made an annotated bibliography etc etc. But then something happened and I really ran out of time. Then I found Digitalessay.net with a quick google search. Needless to say I really recommend it. I got great feedback on my essay and am really glad that I took this opportunity and ordered an essay instead of shoveling some paragraphs together into a pile of crap and submitting it.

Obstacles to german unification resentment towards prussia

  1. 1. Prussian power Although Austria was the most politically powerful state in the Bund, Prussia was very important too. Prussia controlled the Zollverein and was a major military power too.
  2. 2. A Prussian threat? Prussia was seen as a threat by many of the smaller German states, especially in the south. Many small states worried that a united Germany would be dominated by Prussia.
  3. 3. Main obstacle? Yes Austria was both jealous of and angry about Prussia’s economic strength. The decision to exclude Austria from the Zollverein angered them and made them unlikely to work with Prussia.
  4. 4. Main obstacle? Yes Smaller German states tended to side with Austria during discussions at the Bund. Also, the north/south religious differences caused further resentment towards Prussia.
  5. 5. Main obstacle? No France continued to be a worry for many Germans. Prussia was the main obstacle to them taking control of land near the Rhine. Many German states relied on Prussia for protection.
  6. 6. Main obstacle? No Austria tried to end the Zollverein and replace it with their own customs union. However other German states rejected this, believing they had too much to lose, showing some Prussian support.
