ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "The Wilhelmstrasse," by Paul Seabury. In the writing of "The Wilhelmstrasse" Paul Seabury had access to secret documents that came into possession of the Allies after the war. He traces the changes in personnel and spirit of the German diplomatic corps from 1871 when the Empire inherited from Prussia a professionally trained permanent bureaucracy, mostly titled, wholly aristocratic, down through the days of the Weimar Republic and its unsuccessful attempt to democratize the service. Just as the book comes from the press the pathetic figure of the eighty-year-old Constantin von Neurath, who preceded Ribbentrop, emerges from the prison to which the victors in the great war consigned him.
